Outdoor Recreation Makes Alaska Stronger
Our goal is to grow awareness of the value of outdoor recreation as an economic powerhouse and a vital thread of the Alaskan way of life.
We are advocating for greater public investment in expanding outdoor recreation, access and stewardship of our public lands.
We foster collaboration among business, stewardship, healthcare, culture and education stakeholders who believe in the collective value of a thriving outdoor recreation industry.
