Description: The objectives of this presentation are to: (1) describe how ecotourism differs from traditional tourism; (2) provide examples of ecotourism from the U.S.-Mexico region; and (3) suggest potential ecotourism development in the Casas Grandes area; and (4) describe potential problems related to such development. My background in ecotourism is related to two projects: (a) a $200,000 countywide ecotourism development project I helped initiate and manage in Oregon (Forbes 1998); and (b) my dissertation on conservationist Aldo Leopold’s 1930s visits to Municipio Casas Grandes and how ecotourism may now apply there (Forbes and Haas 2000).

Keywords: semi-arid grasslands, endangered species, sustainable ranching, Mexico-U.S. borderlands, ecotourism
