sense of place
SENSE OF PLACE
  • What makes a sense of place?
  • Can you tell where you are?
  • Or are you anywhere USA?
glacier national park
Glacier National Park
  • Score:66 (Doing OK)
  • Glacier draws praise for scenery, ecological integrity and its historic open-top red busses. Needed restoration has begun for the Depression-era lodge buildings and the oft-crowded crumbling Going-To-The-Sun Road. Typically, panelists fret about global warming: “What will Glacier be called when there are no longer any Glaciers?” Also, “the area around the park needs sprucing up.”
yellowstone national park
Yellowstone National Park
  • Score 55 (Facing Trouble)
  • “Yellowstone, our oldest national park, faces some of the most serious threats--water quality, erosion, overuse, wildlife issues. The local community is informed and supportive” except perhaps for the controversial snowmobile proponents, lambasted by many panelists, with a minority mildly dissenting. “Teton is in better shape than Yellowstone, but both are overrun” except for Yellowstone’s big back country
success
Success
  • How do you measure success?
  • Yellowstone Park had nearly 3 million visitors per year.
  • Does it need more visitors?

The Threat of “Generica”

“The homogenization of the landscape through commercialization. If the destination begins to look like the origin, the visitor has every right to ask - why go.”
