"Megan Epler Wood was invited to Banff National Park in April, 2019 to deliver a speech on Tourism's Role in Protecting Earth's Most Valued Assets. The presentation illustrated the need for destinations around the world to begin to develop measured responses to congestion and extensive use of critical resources, both in cities and in natural areas, to ensure the future sustainability of economic, social and environmental systems. Our local planning community found the material to be on target as they move towards crucial decisions for our region.."
