More than 1,200 suggestions from residents in the Sierra Nevada region were included in the Sierra MapGuide, a collaborative project between National Geographic, the Sierra Business Council and Sierra Nevada Conservancy. The MapGuide is an online project that allows locals to contribute their favorite places and activities to help promote geotourism in the region.

According to National Geographic, geotourism is defined as “tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place, including its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage and the well-being of its residents.”
