More and more rural communities are embracing the natural landscape as a cornerstone of their economy.  During this session, we will share success stories of communities across the nation that are keeping outdoors recreation front and center for the health of their people and economy.  Improved health outcomes, increased tourism dollars, and enhanced land stewardship and sense of place for local residents is the result of activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, and biking.
