Making the Great Outdoors More Welcoming


We revisit our earlier discussion considering why outdoor recreation is still so exclusive. We discuss the ways that the great outdoors is not welcoming and accessible for many Americans. We ask why that's the case, how some groups are working to address this issue, and what efforts are underway to encourage all people to spend time in the natural world. 

Air date: Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2020. This show was originally broadcast on Aug. 4, 2020.


This show was produced by fellow Jane Vaughan.
