  • President Donald Trump has directed his top trade and economic advisers to consider re-entering the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a little more than a year after he withdrew the U.S. from the the multilateral trade agreement during his first week in office. Last April, Jessica Wahl, government affairs manager at Outdoor Industry Association, said, “With companies that produce overseas, we’re interested in making sure their tariffs are fair and lower, and enforcing U.S. trade laws to make sure labor and environmental standards are being met.”
  • The National Park Service rolled out its plan to increase park entrance fees by only a few dollars. The funds will go toward infrastructure improvements and will help fill in the $12 billion backlog of upgrades.
  • Amelia Arvesen, assistant editor at SNEWS, attended 1% for the Planet's second annual Global Summit with about 200 others in downtown Boulder, Colorado, on Thursday. The day was packed with panels, breakout sessions, meaningful conversation, and storytelling tips—all focused on how companies can do more to help the environment and share with others why it's a crucial priority. Stay tuned for a follow-up story or two.
  • We love it when good teams grow! Paige Boucher and Erin Brosterhous’s Inside|Out PR just announced Regan Betts is joining their team as Social Media Strategist. Betts has worked with Smartwool, Ibex, and Crocs.
  • At its 37th annual Salute to the Parks celebration on Wednesday, the National Parks Conservation Association honored Former Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Park Service Ranger Betty Reid Soskin. Jewell was awarded the William Penn Mott Jr. Park Leadership Award for being a public official demonstrating an outstanding commitment to the protection of America’s natural and cultural heritage. And Soskin received the prestigious Robin W. Winks Award for enhancing public understanding of national parks.
  • A set of Coolcore t-shirts are visiting space for the next six months. Last week, a load was delivered to the International Space Station by the Space-X Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon cargo capsule. Astronauts will test the shirts, which are made of chemical-free thermoregulating fabric.
