WASHINGTON, DC – The Rural Klamath Connects (RKC) communities of Merrill, Malin, Bonanza, Tulelake and Dorris-Butte Valley in Collaboration with SCOEDD based in Southern Oregon/Northern California have received a 2019 Aliceann Wohlbruck Impact Award from the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) for the Rural Tourism Studio Projects in the Klamath Basin.
Focusing on Outdoor Recreation, Cultural/Historical Heritage and Agritourism, and Marketing projects, action teams developed new family-friendly tourism experiences to attract more visitors to the region and increase their stay. One of the products is a drivable audio tour related to the Modoc War (using VoiceMap technology) and highlighting many south Klamath County and northern Siskiyou County sites.
Award-winning projects were honored during NADO’s 2019 Annual Training Conference, held October 19-22 in Reno, Nev. The 2019 class of award recipients consists of 100 projects from 66 organizations spanning 24 states.
These projects are presented in an interactive “Story Map” developed by NADO and CivicLens that includes project summaries and partners.
