Ep. 16- Ryan Branciforte (CEO) & Technology in the Parks
Updated: Aug 3, 2020
Ryan has a history of connecting people with local trails, having spent time with the NPS, Sonoma Ecology Center and Bay Area Open Space Council.
Today, Ryan is the CEO of OuterSpatial, whose mission is to connect you with organizations that protect and manage your favorite outdoor places. The mobile app shares alerts, posts, trail conditions (closures), and events from your local parks all at your fingertips. Organizations can then use visitation information and gain insight from those using the park.
On the podcast, we talk about technology in the parks and how it can balance the thin line of connecting you, while you attempt to become disconnected.
