Energy Development

Working with coal, methane, oil, and gas developers on responsible extraction.

As the recreation economy grows as an economic driver across the country, potential conflicts between recreation access and energy development are increasing. However, there are a variety of tools that can be used to alleviate these conflicts and optimize public land use for nearby communities. An increasing number of prosperous communities benefitting from thriving recreation economies have addressed common problems from energy developments that impact recreation. These communities have pursued solutions and policy recommendations to protect and enhance recreation economies in order to plan for balanced use of multiple uses on public lands.
