New Report: The Outdoor Foundation Releases Outdoor Recreation Participation Study

Findings include increase in overall participation and declining youth participation

The findings highlighted in the report are areas of both opportunity and concern: while overall participation in outdoor recreation among Americans is increasing, the connection to nature among youth is declining.

The 2008 Outdoor Recreation Participation Report, is based on an on-line survey capturing responses from over 60,000 Americans ages six and older and covers 114 different outdoor activities, making it the largest survey of its type examining participation in sports and outdoor activities. The survey represents a collaborative effort among The Outdoor Foundation, Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association, National Golf Foundation, and SnowSports Industries America.

The report provides important insights into trends in participation in outdoor recreation among all Americans, with focused looks at youth, diversity, and gender.
