Sign On
THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC HAS

hit the $887 billion outdoor industry particularly hard, especially
guides and outfitters in mountain
towns who could be out of work all
summer long. But all of us in every
segment have felt the economic
shocks of this crisis.
There are some bright spots,
however. More people are getting
outside than ever before, and many
outdoor recreation activities can
provide a healthy answer to social
distancing. Plus, outdoor brands
are innovative, creative, and ready
to pivot. The outdoor industry can
be a big part of the coming recovery-but we can't do it alone.
To that end, Outdoor Industry
Association (OIA) has published
a letter that implores Congress to
support our industry, public lands
infrastructure, and mountain
towns that rely on the outdoor
recreation economy.
The letter asks Congress to
consider six key areas in par-

ticular. First, we need
permanent funding
for the Land and
Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)
and funding for
the maintenance
backlog across public
lands. We also ask
for support for the
Simplifying Outdoor
Access for Recreation (SOAR) and
the Recreation Not
Red-Tape acts to help
guides and outfitters, and to get more
Americans outside.
The letter asks for
provisions that would
increase funding for
bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.
It also calls for additional funding
for expansion of the Civilian
Conservation Corps (CCC) to
provide a combination of jobs for
Americans, and restoration and
stewardship of our public lands.
Finally, it asks for funding to
states and local municipalities for
building parks, trails, and other
outdoor recreation amenities in
underserved and under-resourced
communities. It also asks Congress
to prioritize policies to reduce
carbon emissions, stating: "Green
infrastructure solutions not only
sequester carbon and help mitigate
the worst impacts of future natural
disasters, but also serve as places
to recreate." Read the full letter
