Partners Outdoors, a gathering of recreation community leaders from the private and public sectors, is planning its next special meeting designed to promote public-private brainstorming focused on identifying workable, innovative solutions to recreation management challenges.
Partners Outdoors 2018 was a successful gathering, according to the organization, featuring diverse Great Ideas for the Great Outdoors as part of RECx, as well as the annual Outdoor Recreation Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.
An expanded group of public and private recreation leaders met Nov. 28 to chart the future of this important event. They agreed that Partners Outdoors will continue, and that 2019’s gathering will take place in Washington, D.C. in late May/early June.
Members of the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable – the chief organizer of Partners Outdoors in partnership with federal land and water management agencies – committed to expanding its involvement and encourage the active participation of corporate leaders from the $734 billion outdoor recreation industry.
