Are you concerned about the future of outdoor participation? Come to the Outdoor Industry Association Industry Lunch to hear from the Outdoor Foundation and SIA about current participation research and data; the challenges and opportunities organizations like Environmental Learning for Kids, the Share Winter Foundation (SWF) and local Colorado SWF grantee SOS Outreach face in getting more kids and families outside; and what your company can do to support the industry’s future.

The Outdoor Foundation, the philanthropic arm of OIA, will also describe their new approach for investing in local nonprofits to increase participation through Thrive Outside Communities. The Outdoor Foundation’s Thrive Outside Communities are local collectives of regional nonprofits, neighborhoods, national organizations and outdoor industry brands and retailers that will be selected from cities across the country.
