Economies in Transition: Rural Communities & Outdoor Recreation
Located at Table Mountain Inn | Del Rio room (1310 Washington Avenue, Golden, Colorado 80401)
A timely panel discussion with outdoor-inspired leaders from Grand Junction, CO, Idaho Springs, CO and Ogden, UT. Outdoor recreation can be a solid driver for recruitment of new businesses and job creation for these communities. Western rural communities provide a company’s dream place to live, work, and play without being overcrowded and expensive.Many of these communities have unsurpassed natural assets from mountains, rivers, and thousands of acres of public lands open for recreation.
