America's Great Outdoors

February 17, 2011 by Serena Bishop

On Wednesday, Sally Jewell, President and CEO of Recreational Equipment, Inc, introduced President Obama as he unveiled the America’s Great Outdoors: A Promise to Future Generations Report.  REI was a founding member of The Conservation Alliance in 1989, is a Pinnacle Member of The Alliance today and remains active and influential in the success of the organization.

The report on America’s Great Outdoors focuses on connecting American to the great outdoors and the wildspaces of this land.  The AGO report leads with a chapter on the benefits of active, outdoor lifestyles and time spent in the great out-of-doors. The report also calls for the foundation of the Partnership for AGO, a coalition comprised of non-governmental stakeholders to promote innovation, augment partnerships and invest in the future of America’s great outdoors.
