Gareth Martins, Director of Marketing for Osprey Packs and Conservation Alliance board member, joined The Conservation Alliance in Washington, DC a few weeks ago, carrying a positive of how the outdoor recreational economy has remained strong and healthy through challenging economic times.
Gareth has traveled to Washington, DC a number of times to advocate for the protection of our public lands and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and a strong and powerful voice. We are fortunate to have partners like Gareth, truly impassioned individuals who have a long term vision for the health of our economy, our country, and our children.
"The outdoor recreational economy has remained strong and healthy through challenging economic times. Members of The Conservation Alliance rely on public lands for our customers to engage in human powered recreation. I am thankful for those in Congress who recognize that conservation of our public lands is good for our economy – period. I had a great time listening and learning and checking the vibe on Capitol Hill and I look forward to a spirit of progress and action in years to come."
