NRRT 533 - Adventure Tourism Policy and Planning

  • 2 credits

This involves a detailed examination of adventure tourism standards and regulations, in addition to broader government policies that influence the environment within which the adventure tourism industry is situated. As many adventure tourism ventures operate on public lands, the role of public land agencies and their relationships with adventure tourism operators are also closely examined.
