The outdoors economy is a strong and growing economic sector, in the United States alone responsible for generating $887 billion in consumer spending every year. Public lands and waters play a critical role in powering and growing that economy, benefitting towns and businesses across the continent.
“Public lands belong to all of us and are the cornerstone of the $887 billion outdoor economy,” said BHA President and CEO Land Tawney. “Our corporate partners understand that we all need access to our public lands and waters and the fish and wildlife habitat when we get there. We are proud to work with such leaders in the industry to do stand up for North America’s public lands and waters.”
BHA was formed around an Oregon campfire in 2004. With chapters in 39 states, two Canadian provinces and Washington, D.C., BHA brings an authentic, informed, boots-on-the-ground voice to the conservation of public lands. Abundant access to our lands and waters, conservation of important fish and wildlife habitat and the principles of fair chase underlie the BHA mission.
BHA’s 8thannual North American Rendezvous will take place in Boise, Idaho, May 1-4, 2019.
