Outdoor Icons Rally for Choose Outdoors

Outdoor icons Royal Robbins, Larry Burke, founder of Outside Magazine; Skip Yowell, founder of Jansport; Jim Rogers, CEO and Chair of KOA and former USDA Forest Service Chief Dale Robertson rally around Choose Outdoors as Honorary Board members.

Under the leadership of Royal Robbins a prestigious team of thought leaders for the outdoor community is stepping up to create additional focus on the importance of supporting recreation on our public lands and reinforcing the need to create a next generation of responsible users and stewards of those lands.

According to Choose Outdoors founder Bruce Ward, "Many of us who have benefitted so much from our time in the great outdoors realize it is our turn to step up and make a difference for future generations.This Honorary Board represents decades of commitment to this ideal. We are deeply indebted to them for taking on this role. With the President's America's Great Outdoors initiative and the First Lady's Lets Move Outside effort underway we could not have chosen a better time to focus on this critical national campaign."
