Welsh Eco-Tourism Model Excites Elkhorn City, KY

The After Coal: Wales and Appalachia Project visited Elkhorn City recently to talk about eco-tourism in Wales and how what has happened there could apply to this town on the banks of the Russell Fork River in Pike County, KY. Project Director & Filmmaker Tom Hansell and Tim Belcher from the Elkhorn City Heritage Council kicked off discussion with residents eager to learn from what has been done in Wales in order to build on their community’s special assets.
