New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) March 16, 2013
Boating can be a difficult habit to support. It certainly isn’t cheap to keep a boat and trailer in good working order. The staff at Used Boat Motors wants to encourage people to take advantage of any help available in lightening that burden, so they are publically thanking boat owners in Louisiana for attending the ecotourism workshop that was held at the Stella Plantation in Braithwaite. Used Boat Motors also sends their appreciation to the Louisiana Sea Grant and the LSU AgCenter, for sponsoring the event.
The workshop, which was targeted at people that already own boats and have a familiarity with their environment, was focused on ways to earn additional income through ecotourism.
That was a pretty good deal, says UBM, as the workshop was targeted at groups of people that typically struggle financially. With the current crop of reality television shows that focus on a more rural lifestyle, such as Swamp People, already making people want to get out and experience the way different people live, the ecotourism industry is booming. The workshop helped get people prepared to host their own ‘reality’ experiences for tourists that want to try something different.
The workshop was held on March 12, from 8am to 3pm. Topics included earning money from natural resources, making a business plan, and the legal implications of liability, among others.
Used Boat Motors hopes to see other workshops of this type in the future, as ecotourism becomes a larger and larger segment of the vacationer’s activities.
Whether ecotourism is the wave of the future in vacationing, or just another trend that will fall out of fashion and be pushed aside by other trends, the staff at Used Boat Motors hopes to see increased opportunities for revenue gain by boaters. With the support of organizations like the Louisiana Sea Grant and the LSU AgCenter, that just might be possible.
