FBRP at the OEC 9/18-9/20/23

Last week we hosted a booth at the Outdoor Economy Conference in Cherokee, NC from 9/18-9/20. We had a lot of interesting conversations with people from all over the country and made some great new local connections as well. Jane Margaret Bell, WK Dickson; Andrea Leslie, NCWRC; and Mary Roderick, Land of Sky Regional Council were on booth duty. Andrea also presented as a part of the session “Think Before you Dig: Ecological Considerations for Recreation Planning.”
