Creating jobs by conserving wilderness


The scene at the conservation and the economy round table discussion
at Eastern Mountain Sports in Portsmouth, NH.


Will Manzer, President and CEO of Conservation Alliance Pinnacle Member, Eastern Mountain Sports, is passionate about outdoor recreation and knows the outdoor industry. 

"Going outside to play is big business and in this economy, we need all the healthy businesses we can get. And when it comes to outdoor recreation, we’re talking about a LOT of businesses. When you take up a new outdoor sport, you  not only discover a new way to relieve stress and stay active, you start a chain reaction of economic activity."

Check out Will's latest blog post over at The Easter Mountain Sports blog to learn move about the connection between outdoor recreation and job creation, and what you can do to remind our leaders in Congress that conservation is good for the economy.
