The North Coast Tourism Summit takes place Sept. 25 in Garibaldi.


Those interested in shaping the tourism industry for the North Coast are invited to share their opinions at the North Coast Tourism Summit Sept. 25 in Garibaldi.

The summit is a part of a multi-year rural tourism studio, a project where professionals from Travel Oregon lead workshops and offer guidance on how to make tourism sustainable — environmentally and economically — for Clatsop and Tillamook counties. At the end of the process, the grant must be used to finance a tangible change or product, like connecting a trail system or launching an environmental education program.

Residents and industry professionals are invited to discuss tourism-related issues such as encouraging stewardship best practices, integrating more cultural heritage into the visitor experience, and finding ways to reduce congestion during peak seasons.

The workshop will be held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Old Mill Event Center in Garibaldi. The event is free, but participants must register at industry.traveloregon.com.
