The Institute for Local Government (ILG), in partnership with RCRC, is hosting a FREE webinar on August 31st from 10:30am to 12:00pm exploring tools and strategies for promoting the protection and preservation of California’s valuable recreational areas. 

Recreational areas throughout the State of California have experienced a substantial growth in visitors over the past couple years. From pandemic related travel restrictions to an increased desire for outdoor activities, individuals continue to flock to these often rural locations on local government, state and federal land to explore what California’s beautiful open spaces have to offer. 

While this boost in tourism provides benefits to local economies, it also creates concern over adverse impacts to the environment, wildlife, and surrounding communities from overuse and overcrowding. On this webinar, local agency and government representatives will discuss their experiences and recommended best practices for establishing sustainable recreation that protects and preserves California’s valuable recreational areas for the benefit of all.
