, Arcosanti’s
Tourism Development Coordinator, greets Tour Operator Katja Dreyer at
the Arizona Tourism trade show in late February, 2002. Ms. Dreyer, who
is from Germany, is with FTI North America and arranges motorcoach
tours on the West Coast for international visitors. Cliff attended the
trade show at the Spotlight in Lake Havasu, Az to convince tour
operators to stop their motorcoaches at Arcosanti for a tour and a
meal, to attend a concert, to learn about organic gardening, or to do a
new bird watching tour along the Agua Fria River. Cliff said, “There
is much more interest in Arcosanti this year compared to last year.”
