Partners Outdoors 2014 Videos

Partners Outdoors 2014 is in the books and was one of the most successful yet! Partners from all over the recreation community came out to the Department of the Interior in Washington D.C. to attend 3 days of spirited and inspirational discussion about how public and private entities can work better together to serve the public and share America’s Great Outdoors with everyone across the nation. Our 3 topics were: Funding Recreation in the Great Outdoors Sustainably, Hosting All Americans in their Great Outdoors and Working Better As Partners Outdoors. The lively discussions featured public and private heavyweights like National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis, American Recreation Coalition President Derrick Crandall, Author Audrey Peterman, Virginia State Parks Director Joe Elton, Georgia State Parks Director Becky Kelley and many more. Monday’s first General Session, both General Sessions from Tuesday and Wednesday and Monday’s Beacon Awards are all available for viewing online.
