Think your favorite recreation spot is protected from oil and gas drilling? Not necessarily. In fact, all public lands, including national parks and wildlife refuges, are potentially open to oil and gas leasing, except for areas specially designated as “Wilderness.”
Every time you escape into wilderness, you will likely spend money on outdoor goods and services. If you're not dropping bucks on things like gear and equipment, there's a good chance you're spending money at local businesses, outfitters or lodging near outdoor recreation areas.
