The Geotourism Stewardship Council is regional advisory committee that assists the National Geographic Society in developing the Redwood Coast California Geotourism Map Guide. It represents a variety of geotourism perspectives in the six participating counties of west Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Humboldt, and Del Norte. These perspectives include community leadership, historic preservation, natural resources, public lands management, indigenous peoples, traditional and local arts, agriculture, tourism promotion, and local businesses. From Point Reyes National Seashore in the south to Smith River National Recreation Area in the north, the project aims to promote innovative tourism that will benefit residents and visitors in ways that are both environmentally and economically sustainable.
