The outdoor recreation industry contributes $427.2 billion to US GDP annually and its share is continuing to grow. Individually, for some states, the outdoor recreation industry can account for up to 6 percent of the state GDP. In this webinar we had experts discuss their recent work exploring the outdoor recreation industry in every state, along with major trends they identified during their research. Our speakers were from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and Headwaters Institute. Thank you to those that were able to join us for the live webinar! For those unable to tune in, not to worry: You can watch a recording of the webinar above.
