USU Research Landscapes event

On May 12, join us for the next USU Research Landscapes, featuring Dr. Jordan Smith, the director of the Institute of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism at Utah State University.

The event will be at 4:30 p.m. at the O.C. Tanner headquarters in Salt Lake City, and will include a question-and-answer session and networking opportunities with other attendees.

During his presentation, Dr. Smith will highlight three of his current research projects:

  • A look at visitation trends in Little Cottonwood, Big Cottonwood, and Millcreek Canyons
  • An effort, in coordination with tribal leaders, to select a location for the Bears Ears National Monument visitor center
  • A research-focused collaboration to identify investment opportunities for outdoor recreation infrastructure development throughout Utah
