American Recreation Coalition

Fall 2013 Issues Briefing

The American Recreation Coalition’s Fall Recreation Issues Briefing focused on four key topics: funding recreation in America’s Great Outdoors; connecting people with their Great Outdoors; MAP-21 and key recreation transportation issues; and Great Outdoors Month 2014. More than 50 representatives of recreation, conservation and tourism organizations gathered at AAA in Washington, D.C. to hear from topic experts and to offer their own observations on the issues at hand.

To complement the presentations and discussions, ARC prepared and distributed a series of white papers providing useful background on each issue.
