What are they up to & Why are they up to it, with Dr. Jordan Smith

When you need help managing the recreation experiences in your community, Jordan Smith is the researcher you need. Using Instagram posts, big data, and other tools, he figures out what all those recreationists are up to. As Utah’s population continues to climb, community leaders are turning to Jordan Smith for advice on how to handle the sheer amount of new residents and visitors.

Dr. Smith is a featured speaker for a virtual USU Research Landscapes event: “National Parks, Forgotten Resources, and Growing Wisely.” You can find more about the event at rl.usu.edu, including the recording, other podcast episodes from featured speakers, and links to useful resources.
