Choose Outdoors partnered with award winning journalist James Edward Mills on New Century Vision Quest. The fate of public land
in the United States lies squarely in the hands of the American people. After more than a century of conscientious management by both public
and private agencies the enduring legacy of environmental preservation will continue through the leadership of a new generation of stewards
from a broad spectrum of social and cultural experiences. As the U.S. population grows to become more racially and ethnically diverse people
of color will have a very prominent role to play in the protection of our wild and scenic places, the conservation of our natural resources
and the mitigation of anthropogenic causes of climate change. In hopes engendering members of Congress to support a series of Presidential
Memoranda meant to create an approach to public land management that includes the interests of all the American people, the Joy Trip Project,
in partnership with Choose Outdoors, completed a storytelling mission to illustrate and share a vision of what the next 100 years might look
Working with Rotary International Clubs in Colorado, Boy Scouts of America Choose Outdoors and Denver Public Schools' Career Education Center Choose Outdoors is developing unique opportunities for youth to experience the great outdoors through rock climbing, fishing, snowmobiling, camping, mountain biking, camping and a variety of other outdoor activities.
Choose Outdoors is concerned about the future of our forests as places to enjoy the great outdoors. We have joined forces with conservation and
recreation groups and timber companies to increase support for US Forest Service mission of "Caring for the Land and Serving the People". Catastrophic
wildfires and unprecedented massive insect infestations are destroying the places we love to recreate in and are in desperate need of adaptive
management in these times of climate change and long term drought.
Synergy conferences to bring outdoor community leaders together in Washington, DC, Colorado, and Alaska to work on mutually beneficial policies,
initiatives and strategic alliances.
Established Regional Recreation Coalitions to increase support for our mission in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Alaska and Utah.
Developed specific partnerships with the U.S. Forest Service and other agencies charged with management of outdoor recreation opportunities and landscapes.
