BECOME A PUBLIC LANDS BUSINESS ALLY
(No cost or donation to join)
Our public lands are falling victim to an onslaught of attacks both locally and nationally, as efforts have ratcheted up to underfund, downsize, sell-off, privatize, and expand resource extraction. These efforts are not only a threat to our public lands, they are a threat to our outdoor culture, western heritage, and economy.
States like Colorado, and areas like the Roaring Fork, Eagle, Vail Valleys, depend heavily on the bounty of our public lands. Tourism and recreation generated $47.7 billion for Colorado in 2016, not including indirect economic benefits spawned for related business and industry. Our local economy thrives in large part because of our proximity and access to public lands. Colorado’s pristine forests, majestic mountains, wild lands and clean air and water are the key ingredients to our flourishing economy, not only attracting tourists, but also beckoning top talent and a highly educated workforce to want to live, work and play here.
Wilderness Workshop’s Public Lands Business Allies is made up of more than 100 local businesses who proudly voice their support for protecting public lands and keeping them available for all Americans to enjoy. Elevate your business’ voice today.
“If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.”
President Lyndon B. Johnson
