The Mississippi River Geotourism Program seeks to capture and promote the culture, heritage and ecological diversity of the people and places that are connected to the Mississippi River through the voices and stories of the people that live along its shores. The National Geographic Society and its partners are working with local organizations, businesses and residents to map the best travel experiences, stories and businesses along the Mississippi River. You’re invited to recommend historic, cultural and natural landmarks; events, attractions and activities; businesses, artisans and storytellers as well as local legends that capture the region’s unique character, heritage and beauty. Here is the web site for the Mississippi River Geotourism Program: http://mississippiriver.natgeotourism.com/. Partway down the site you can find a place to download the nomination guidelines and instructions on how to make a nomination. Or, here’s a direct link to the nomination account set up screen: http://mississippiriver.natgeotourism.com/user/account. Note: Check the box next to “I would like to nominate places to the MapGuide.” That step allows you to go back into your submission later. The National Geographic Society will work closely with the Mississippi River Geotourism Council to select the sites and themes that will appear on the map. The National Geographic Society will make the final determination on wording and site selection. Let’s make sure that all of the great resources along our Minneapolis riverfront are nominated!!!
