Do you like to get outside on Montana's Custer Gallatin National Forest or the western slope of Colorado? If so, we need your help to understand the economic impact of recreation there.

Outdoor Alliance is working with a social scientist to measure the economic impact of human-powered recreation on priority national forests in Colorado (GMUG) and Montana (Custer Gallatin). We did a similar study last year for a couple of forests in North Carolina. You can see the reports here.

Why do these studies? These forests are now developing new forest plans, which will serve as the blueprints for what happens in these forests for the next 10-15 years. The economic figures help us advocate for a rock-solid plan that both protects the environment and human powered access.

If you recreate in Colorado or Montana, you can help by taking one of the economic surveys. Find them right here:
