The Great Southern Centre for Outdoor Recreation Excellence (GSCORE) is thrilled to announce it has officially turned two.
Based in Albany, GSCORE is a not-for-profit organisation established to promote the growth and development of the outdoor recreation industry in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.
Executive Director Dr Lenore Lyons says much has been achieved a short space of time, not the least establishing the organisation from the ground up.
To date, successful activities have included work on the Great Southern Regional Trails Master Plan, the creation of the Great Southern Learning Adventures website, funding to deliver tourism training and mentoring programs, and the highly successful annual Great Southern Trails Forum.
“Over the last year our Board and staff have been working together to achieve our shared vision of positioning the Great Southern as a premier destination for adventure-based tourism,” says Dr Lyons.
“We’re very happy with the progress we’ve made. The Great Southern community have been incredibly supportive of the work we’re doing, particularly on the trails project.”
GSCORE Board Chairman Greg Mair says the birthday is an exciting milestone for the fledgling organisation.
“We’ve established our reputation within the region as an effective partner to work with,” said Mr Mair.
“We are now focusing our attention on identifying opportunities to build business capacity and income streams through strong partnerships with our regional stakeholders.”
