Geotourism Charter

The Spokesman-Review
 

Rhode Island in May became the latest region to sign the Geotourism Charter by the National Geographic Society, joining Arizona, Guatemala, Honduras, Norway and Romania in a commitment to the ideals of geotourism. The state will form a “Geotourism Collaborative” to come up with ways to preserve its unique assets, whether it be Narragansett Bay at the heart of Rhode Island or its Colonial-era architecture in Newport and Providence. Other areas have made maps with the help of National Geographic highlighting geotourism destinations, including the Appalachian region.
