Forum planned for geotourism mapping project

UPPER LAKE – In an effort to ensure that the environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and locally owned businesses are well represented in the nominations for the North Coast Geotourism Project, the Lodge at Blue Lakes is hosting a forum to complete nomination applications on Friday, May 22, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The end product of the North Coast Geotourism Project will be the production of a National Geographic Society branded map and a geotourism MapGuide website, with destinations nominated by community members, for the North Coast area of California, which included Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, Lake, Sonoma, and Marin Counties.

The deadline for nominations is May 31, 2009.
