Outdoor recreation continues to boom, especially in Montana, where lifestyles and the overall economy benefit greatly from these amenities and their associated industry. However, as recreation use increases, land managers face a growing challenge in balancing the trade-offs between access and other conservation objectives. Let’s chat about this.

Each panelist will present a 10-minute overview of their personal/professional background with individual insight into this topic, followed by a group discussion with CAC members.
