Opportunity to Have Your Voice Heard on July 27th     
ARRA recently sent an alert notifying you that earlier this year President Obama held a conference on America’s Great Outdoors and established the America’s Great Outdoors Initiative to be led by the Secretaries of Interior and Agriculture, the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Chair of the Council of Environmental Quality.  The initiative is tasked with reconnecting Americans, especially children, to the outdoors and to receive public input and ideas.

Part of this initiative includes a series of Listening Sessions around the country, including a July 27th session in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to discuss land conservation, recreation, and reconnecting people to the outdoors.

It is vitally important that the Administration hear from you about how you recreate on and enjoy public lands.  If you can attend, please take this opportunity to make it clear that millions of Americans responsibly enjoy motorized recreation on public lands.  If you can not make it to the session you can still submit comments on the America’s Great Outdoors website here: http://ideas.usda.gov/ago/ideas.nsf/
