"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

California Travel with Natural Benefits

Ecotourism is responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and sustains the well-being of local people.

Nature Tourism

Whether you stay in a mountain bed and breakfast, or camp in the wilderness, nature travel is great for wildlife watching and learning about different plant communities such as forests and deserts and wetlands. Many rural natural areas depend on tourism to support their local families. Your support through lodging, meals, purchase of postcards to send to friends, and souvenirs can make a big difference to the people living on, and protecting our wilderness and agricultural open spaces.

Cultural Tourism

Cultural tourism includes museums and parks and retreat centers and historic sites and today's cultural events for music, crafts, arts, and the many special interest clubs such as car collectors, stamp collectors, pet shows...and an endless flow of ways we find encouragement, community and beauty. By sharing your cultural stories and treasures, you help promote understanding and share the wealth among people with similar needs and goals.

Community Development Tourism

By visiting farmers markets, flea markets, roadside stands, small downtowns, and other small businesses that offer food, lodging, clothing, books, and the wide variety of innovative goods and services making up our complex society, you are supporting community development. When you travel, you have the opportunity to make choices that support what you value and what you would like to see continue by making a liveable wage possible for people along your path.

Environmental Stewardship Travel

There are many volunteer opportunities with environmental projects. This can be an uplifting vacation, or a daytrip that educates as well as gives you fresh air and new appreciation for a local natural treasure.
