America's Great Outdoors Initiative "Homegrown" Listening Session Announced for TX
Greetings BRC Action Alert Subscribers!
On April 16, 2010, President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum that will radically change the U.S. Government's conservation policy. The Memorandum created the America's Great Outdoors Initiative which, among other things, will take public input on how to conserve public and private lands and how to promote outdoor recreation among young Americans.
It is important that off-highway vehicle and mountain bike users participate. OHV, snowmobile and mountain bike recreation are family-oriented activities that connect millions of Americans to the out-of-doors.
Outdoor Industry Association (OIA), the national trade association for suppliers, manufacturers and retailers in the $289 billion outdoor recreation industry, along with Austin-based, specialty outdoor retailer BACKWOODS, Inc., announced a "homegrown" listening session for America's Great Outdoors Initiative (AGO). The AGO listening session will be held at Hill Country Galleria near Austin, Texas on Tuesday, August 17 from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Upcoming Event (more to come)
OIA, Austin-based, BACKWOODS to host "homegrown" listening session August 17
Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) is hosting homegrown listening sessions around the country to support and supplement the official administration sessions and to ensure the outdoor recreation community's voice is well represented to President Obama.
Jennifer Mull will join representatives from OIA to host the two-hour listening session. The homegrown event seeks a broad spectrum of outdoor recreation, youth, and minority interest groups to attend. The event will give these attendees a chance to express their opinions about the 21st-century challenges to recreation, best-practices and regional conservation techniques, and how the federal government can best support these efforts.
WHAT: America's Great Outdoors Initiative Homegrown Listening Session
WHEN: Tuesday, August 17, 2010, 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m
WHERE: Hill Country Galleria
12700 Hill Country Blvd. Ste. T-100
Bee Cave, TX 78738
WHO: Everyone is invited.
WHY: Homegrown listening sessions aim to empower and represent the voices from the outdoor recreation community within the national AGO conversation, and to augment state, local, private, and tribal conservation initiatives targeting public and private lands.

There is also an online forum that allows folks to make suggestions and comment on ideas others have suggested. We encourage you attend the meetings and/or to log on and express your opinion. We've included a brief explanation that will help you understand what is happening and how to make your opinion known.
BRC and others are wondering aloud if this America's Great Outdoors Initiative is connected to the Treasured Landscape Initiative and the leaked memo outlining plans for 14 new or expanded national monument designations on 13 million acres of public and private land.
