Youth to Help Facilitate Regional Forum on Outdoor Recreation

GOLDEN, Colorado --Young adults representing outdoor clubs and youth groups from the West, will be helping to facilitate a daylong regional forum on outdoor recreation at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado on Thursday, March 1, 2007. This is the first of six recreation forums being convened across the country by the National Forest Foundation and the American Recreation Coalition, in cooperation with more than two dozen organizations and agencies.  Organizers are expecting 350 people to attend.

The forum theme, "Turning Inside Out: New Doors to the Outdoors," focuses specifically on the West's changing demographics and the benefits young people gain from outdoor recreation.  Recreation groups, tourism interests, sportsmen's organizations and many others will be talking about ideas for getting youth involved in the outdoors. Land management agencies will be on hand to listen so that they can incorporate these ideas into their programs. The other forums will be held in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Portland.  Invited participants will present proceedings from the regional forums at a national forum in Washington D.C. For more information, visit www.recreationforums.info.

The Forest Service's 12-mule pack string will be on hand to show how they help many youth groups accomplish volunteer trail construction and resource improvement projects across the West (weather permitting).
