Great Bend Gov. Sam Brownback will host a gathering April 28 in central Kansas to discuss the state's potential to develop outdoor sites for ecotourism.
The summit will be held at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center at the Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area near Great Bend. Presenters will include Ted Eubanks, founder of the ecotourism consulting firm Fermata.
Brownback has invited participants to discuss ideas for nature-based tourism focusing on wildlife and the landscape, such as bird-watching and photography.
The summit is by invitation only because seating at the education center is limited.
