The Sustainable Ozarks Partnership (SOP), created by an Office of Economic Adjustment grant in 2019 has recently unveiled a new website to help develop community relations and enhance military partnerships in the Fort Leonard Wood Region of Missouri.

“The website was created as a collaborative effort to promote Pulaski, Phelps, Laclede, and Texas Counties to travelers visiting, and residents of, the Fort Leonard Wood Region,” said FLW Region tourism committee co-chair Judy Fortner.

The purpose of the website is to share relevant suggestions for recreation, lodging and events in the region. Furthermore, the organization created a Facebook page to allow SOP members and local business leader to share tourism information in a centralized media page.

According to the Sustainable Ozarks Partnership, the region hosts over 150,000 military graduation visitors each year, which contributes $85 million to Missouri’s economy.
