Why your voice matters. Watch now.

“Once elected, our senators, representatives and administration depend on public input to make informed decisions. Human powered recreation on public land is as American as apple pie. We take it for granted; yet with the pressure of well-funded interests that expound values that run counter to the ethos of outdoor recreation, we need to make sure the benefit of wild places are heard. We all have a personal connection to a special place that influenced our view of the world. Gently reminding our public servants of this is one way I can give back to the land and animals that have shaped my life.”  – Conrad Anker, The North Face
