Institute of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism
This study was initiated and commissioned by the Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Division of the National Park Service.
This report is the first summary and analysis of the state offices of outdoor recreation. It provides a starting point for land management agencies, state and local governments, industry, nonprofits, and other partners to better understand the origins and missions of newly-formed state offices of outdoor recreation. It also provides best practices for states considering the establishment of their own office of outdoor recreation, as well as recommendations to the current state offices and the National Park Service to facilitate collaboration.
