We all thrive outside

The Outdoor Foundation is dedicated to getting people outside for their health, the health of communities and the health of the outdoor industry. Through community investment and groundbreaking research, we work with a national network of partners to get more people outside more often.

THE NEW OUTDOOR PARTICIPANT (COVID AND BEYOND)

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, more Americans turned to the outdoors, some for the first time and others for the first time in many years. Learn more about our unprecedented opportunity to grow and diversify the outdoor community.
