Where We Stand: Outdoor Industry Association’s Position on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Coastal Plain

April 13, 2016

Few places in this world are as inspirational and pristine as Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and its Coastal Plain. From its breathtaking natural beauty and rugged, virtually untouched wilderness to its wildlife great and small, the Arctic offers some of the world’s most incredible outdoor recreation experiences. As outdoor industry companies that make and sell products for outdoor recreation and depend on our nation’s natural landscapes and waters, it is imperative for our businesses, for our quality of life and for our shared American heritage, to protect places with high recreation value, from our backyards to the backcountry.
