The Day We Marched for Our Public Lands
Last week, during the final Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, nearly 3,000 people marched to the state capitol to show their support for our public lands. Spirits were high, the celebration was great, and the goodbyes were heartfelt.
As we look forward to the next iteration of Outdoor Retailer in Denver, our drive to honor and maintain our public lands, the backbone of the outdoor recreation economy, remains strong as ever. Here’s a recap of that spirit captured on video.
