Join Osher for an overnight excursion to Zion National Park for a first-hand, behind-the-scenes look at the dynamics of managing the park and its impact on surrounding communities. In just two days you will delve into the complex issues of land management between state, local, and federal stakeholders; over-tourism and the corresponding stress it places on local residents and small-business owners; and, what the future holds for the area's natural resources, its economy, and its citizens' quality of life. Trip highlights include: Overnight lodging at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort; In-person discussions with prominent stakeholders; catered dinner and breakfast buffet; day hike in Zion National Park (weather permitting); and lunch at the world-famous Oscar's Cafe in Springdale.
