The Obama administration established America’s Great Outdoors to hear Americans’ best ideas for developing a new conservation strategy. The Wilderness Society offered comments to the administration in September 2010 that outline our vision for a successful America's Great Outdoors initiative.
America’s Great Outdoors is an opportunity to transform conservation for the 21st century, and leave a legacy that future generations can enjoy. America’s public lands provide health, economic and recreation benefits that sustain our communities. Protecting, connecting and restoring our public lands should be a critical component of a successful America’s Great Outdoors.
