Outdoor Business Networks

Outdoor Business Networks: Public Land Solutions (PLS) created Outdoor Business Networks to engage gateway community businesses in public land policy. These businesses include retailers, outfitters, manufacturers, hotel and restaurant owners, along with other industries that depend on tourism and outdoor recreation opportunities provided by all types of public lands.

PLS provides information and analysis to Network subscribers regarding public land proposals and issues that may affect the outdoor industry within their region. PLS also creates opportunities for businesses to shape and influence public land management. These include conversations with local, county, state, and federal officials through letters, position statements, and meetings. These opportunities for engagement on public lands issues allow local businesses to protect their economic interests as they relate to public land management.

The Network is not an association and participating businesses are not required to speak with one voice on any issue. Rather, the Network allows each business to engage on specific issues and initiatives on a case by case basis. PLS will contact Network members when public land issues come up, provide a succinct analysis, and offer options for business participation.
