Penna. Assoc. of Boros Webinar: Revitalize Your Community Using Nature-based Assets.
Eastwick has been hired by Penna. Assoc. of Boros (PSAB) to present 2 webinars around the Outdoor Economy and how communities can leverage their outdoor assets to enhance their quality of life and local economy by utilizing Nature-Based Place Making, Trail Towns or Outdoor Towns programs.
The webinars will be on Jun. 22 and Jun. 29 and we wanted you to be aware of them.
A description of the programs can be found at https://boroughs.org/ckfinder/userfiles/files/June%20Current%20Webinar%20Schedule.pdf.
The first webinar is about the Outdoor Economy i.e., the depth and breadth of the economy and the second is how a community can benefit from it and engage in one of the programs listed above.
The Outdoor Economy is big business in Pennsylvania, and your town can be a part of it! With a $28 billion economic impact in the state and supporting over 246,00 jobs, it includes all aspects of outdoor recreation, from visitors spending on biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing, or camping, to retail sales, services, and manufacturing.
Many communities throughout PA have nature-based assets like multi-use trails, rivers and lakes, or mountains; some may be gateway towns near state parks that attract thousands of visitors yearly. Using these assets to become a hub for outdoor recreation, can improve the quality of life for residents, attract new businesses and workers, and become destinations for tourists.
The PA State Association of Boroughs is partnering with Eastwick Solutions, a leader in nature-based revitalization, to present two dynamic and informative webinars. Learn how to transform your communities through various programs and best practices. The first of two webinars will help you jump-start revitalization by leveraging your nature-based assets.
Date: Thursday, June 22, 2023
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Part 1
