Bay of Fundy wins!

We won!
Last night at the Canadian national tourism conference in Jasper, Alberta, the Bay of Fundy Tourism Partnership was presented with a national award: the Parks Canada Award for Sustainable Tourism. I've been working with the Partnership for 9 years, so I got to go out to receive the award.

For about a year now we've been doing green business assessments for our member tourism operators: natural and historical attractions, accommodations and adventures. I'm really excited that all this hard work to make the Bay of Fundy a greener place is being recognized. Our partner for the implementing the eco-business program is Dalhousie University's Eco-efficiency Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Here is a picture of me and Peggy (Manager of the Eco-efficiency Centre) in our fancy clothes accepting the award during the gala event.

This blog is great! I'm currently a student doing a work term with the Central Nova Tourist Association. I too have recently developed a greater appreciation for the whole 'social media scene' and have become a fellow blogger.

I was thinking the other day how cool it would be if CNTA or the Glooscap Heritage Centre had their own blog. We'd be so tech savy ;0) And it's a great way to interact with potential visitors and get feedback from people who have been to the area.

It's nice to see that someone from our region has already taken the initiative to embrace this technology and use it as a form of promotion for our area.

Keep on posting! I'll be sure to check back regularly and I'll pass this along friends, family, and co-workers....I may have to try a couple of those mussel recipes as well :0)
