Webinar with guest speaker, Alyssa Ravasio
Outdoor recreation is a way for us to relax, recharge and connect with nature, and other people. With trails and other popular recreation areas getting busier, there’s also more pressure on landscapes and wildlife.
What are some steps we can take to better protect the places we love to recreate in and explore?
In a joint event with Yellowstone to Yukon, hear from Alyssa Ravasio, founder and CEO of Hipcamp, who will discuss how collaborations, including with private land owners and recreationists, can be part of the decisions and planning that support healthy landscapes for generations to come.
