Every day is Octoberfest in October! We’re most excited about the October 5 Worldwide Photo Walk and Open Access Week (October 21-27). Both of these events serve as benchmark for tourism and conservation events: why can’t all events be more inclusive, more innovative and more open? Foodies, take note of World Food Day on October 16 and World Egg Day, October 11. Nevada fans, your day is October 25 (just one more year until the sesquicentennial!
