WHY DID WE CHOOSE TO PILOT

THE PROGRAM IN THESE PARKS?

  • Geographic link to the Potomac River.

  • Urban/suburban neighborhood proximity with a blend of local/regional and destination use.

  • Diverse recreational, historic and cultural assets and diverse visitation.

  • Linear nature of both parks creates the ideal opportunity for the adoption of communication through technology.

  • Partnerships with numerous organizations that will find podcasts attractive.

OBJECTIVES

  • To create 12-15 audio/visual podcasts in English/Spanish for two national park sites

  • To provide this information to the public free-of-charge via iTunes and park websites

  • To find innovative ways to market podcasts and make them available to travelers.

PODCAST SPECIFICS

- Each park will create an introductory podcast which will be 12-15 minutes long.

  • Shorter segments (3-5 minutes each) will augment the introductory podcasts and focus on selected topics or locations.

  • The project will enlist the assistance of local and state government agencies, tourism promotion agencies, and park partners.


To focus group participant thank you for agreeing to be a member of

WHY PODCASTS?

  • In most cases, visitors already possess (and highly value) a platform for this new information stream.

  • 200+ million iPods and clones are now in the hands of Americans -- nearly every youth has one!

OVERVIEW/TIMELINE

  • American Recreation Coalition and the National Tour Association will record and produce the podcasts in close consultation with park management.

  • Initial podcasts will be available to the public by Fall/Winter 2007

  • This is part of an on-going effort with the goal of updating and expanding park podcasts in the future by developing in-house capabilities to do so by 2008/2009.
