Heart of the Continent Partnership Geotourism Partnership with National Geographic Society

Purpose

Heart of the Continent Partnership (HOCP) will partner with the National Geographic Society to create a regional geotourism map and website. Drawing input and involvement from a wide spectrum of local stakeholders, this product will highlight the outstanding natural, cultural and historical resources in the Heart of the Continent, a binational region of more than five million acres of public lands, along with its historic gateway communities. HOCP will become a part of a network of related geotourism websites and will gain great visibility for our region by doing so.

Partners

Activities
