The Next Generation of America’s Outdoors

In a year when many conservation and outdoor organizations will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act and honoring the work that has been done to protect the outdoors it is equally important for us to focus on the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts and the future of our outdoors. GO Week 2014 will focus on the next Generation of America's Outdoors. From young people working on the land through conservation corps, to organizations working to get more young people outdoors, to conservation organizations working to engage the next generation of public land supporters inspiring and creating the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts is critical to the future of our young people and America's outdoors.
