America’s Great Outdoors: Outdoor Nation!

This month, representatives of NWF and 500 young people traveled to Central Park in New York City.

Their charge? Strategize how Americans can reclaim, redefine and rediscover the great outdoors.

Hosted by the Outdoor Foundation, this diverse youth summit aimed to find ideas to influence policies and programs in the United States. The recent Outdoor Nation summit in New York served as an official listening session for President Obama’s America’s Great Outdoors initiative.
