3 10 2009

Washow Lodge has been selected by Teva and the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) as 1 of 3 candidates  for a scholarship to attend the Adventure Travel and Tourism Conference in Quebec.  Washow Lodge’s proactive community-based tourism strategies and sustainable tourism mandates likely set us apart in this competition – whatever the case, we are honored and look forward to sending a representative on behalf of the Moose Cree First Nation.

An exciting first award for us, we look forward to working towards more of its kind!
