Sharing Community Success Stories – Wild Rivers Coast

The Wild Rivers Coast is featured in the latest Communities Powered by Travel video which highlights accomplishments community leaders have had as a result of participating in Oregon’s Rural Tourism Studio (RTS).

Nestled on Oregon’s South Coast, the Wild Rivers Coast includes the communities of Bandon, Brookings, Gold Beach, Langlois and Port Orford.

The RTS program is designed to assist rural communities in fostering sustainable tourism development. For the latest in this series, Travel Oregon, in collaboration with Write to Know Consulting and Maser Films, highlights how community members found power in regional collaboration and joined forces to develop tourism products in both outdoor recreation and culinary and agritourism.

Major regional success stories include the launch of the Wild Rivers Coast Farm Trail and the receipt of more than $350,000 in 2016 to support the expansion of two non-motorized trail projects in the region.

In addition to the video, three case studies developed by Write to Know Consulting are available at
