Governor's Task Force on Outdoor Recreation

Governor Kate Brown directed the Office of Outdoor Recreation to form a temporary task force. Dubbed the “Task Force on the Outdoors,” the group will develop high-level recommendations on these topics:

 

  • Economic development of rural and urban areas to ensure equal access to the outdoors
  • Balancing improved access to the outdoors with environment and natural resource protection
  • Increasing outdoor participation, especially among youth and traditionally underserved communities.

 

Task force members are appointed by the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission, the body that also oversees Oregon State Parks. Members are selected from government agencies, businesses and nonprofits that have a stake in outdoor recreation.  

The task force has one year to research and prepare a report to the Office of the Governor. The report will detail recommended policies, legislation and initiatives to support the above topics.
