The Trumpeter Swan is the largest North American waterfowl, can live a long time – over 24 years, and usually mate for life. They breed in freshwater marshes and along ponds and lakes, and they winter in lakes, streams, springs, rivers, and reservoirs, such as at Sage Flat in Harriman State Park, Idaho.
Livability is a concept and national movement based on the aspirations of communities to improve the quality of life and sense of place in urban, suburban and rural environments. Scenic byways can serve as a means to create more livable corridors to safely enjoy and access vibrant communities.
Geotourism is tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place — its environment, heritage, aesthetics, culture, and the well-being of its residents.
YBP believes that the long-term profitability of a business is best ensured when it pays as much attention to its community and environmental impacts as to its financial performance.
