Public Lands Day

September 26, 2020

Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) works on many initiatives to enhance the outdoor industry and outdoor recreation-one of the those initiations is the protection of public lands. We work at the state and local levels as well as federally to affect policy to support our public lands through land protection and funding.

This in-depth, year-long series will unravel the complex network of people, places, events, interests and funding mechanisms that make outdoor recreation possible for all Americans.


The outdoor industry’s collective voice has power in Washington. Timely engagement on issues critical to the health of the outdoor industry, including public lands policy, is not just the right thing to do – it’s a must-do.
