Gov. Sam Brownback is smart in wanting to boost ecotourism in Kansas. Brownback met last week with Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and discussed ideas for attracting to the region more hunters, bird-watchers and others who enjoy nature. Kansas “boasts a diverse landscape with many outstanding opportunities for travelers to enjoy the outdoors,” Brownback said in a statement. Tourism is already the third-largest industry in Kansas, based on jobs, and there is a lot of potential for growth. Working with neighboring states is also smart. “I am encouraged that we are working together to identify and develop strategies to attract people to this beautiful region of the world,” Brownback said after the meeting.
