Brazilian Public Land Tour

I was part of a really special experience today. A contingent of Brazilian Public Land Managers visited The Basin. The group is on a fact finding mission visiting with staff of various US public land agencies. Local and regional Forest Service staff brought these gentleman up for an A-Basin tour. At home, one of their objectives is to create more opportunities for Brazilian citizens to have access to public lands including parks, forests, and wildlife refuges. In particular they were interested in private entities managing tourist operations on public lands. We spent some quality time discussing A-Basin operations and how we interact with the White River National Forest.
