Travel Oregon will be holding public forums throughout Clatsop County next week to discuss the future of sustainable tourism.

The forums are a part of an ongoing rural tourism studio — a multiyear project where professionals from Travel Oregon lead workshops and offer guidance on how to make tourism economically and environmentally sustainable for Clatsop and Tillamook counties. Anyone who would like to offer suggestions about how the tourism industry should be managed in the region is invited to attend.

The first will be held 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, May 7, at the Surfsand Resort in Cannon Beach. Two other sessions will be held Tuesday, May 8, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Best Western Ocean View Resort in Seaside and 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa in Astoria. Those interested can make reservations at
