New Web site Will Promote Best of Yakima Valley To Tourists

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--The goal of a new partnership is to bring more tourists to the Yakima Valley, and they need your help.

The National Geographic Society, Washington State Tourism, and Travel Oregon are creating a geo-tourism map and web site.

Geo-tourism promotes natural and cultural attractions and pride in local communities.

You can nominate memorable attractions for the map.

"The goal is to sustain and promote those unique aspects of the region in heritage, history, geography, geology and the environment," Yakima Valley Visitor and Convention Bureau CEO John Cooper said.

You can nominate a person, place or event at a forum on February 18 at 9:00 a.m.

The forum will be at the Yakima Convention Center
