Pathway to Increase Diversity in the Outdoors

What happens when our country’s fastest growing populations feel a connection to the outdoors and heritage sites? Diversity and inclusion in the outdoors and heritage sites can foster a new generation of stewards, educate about cultural heritage connections, and combat health disparities like obesity. This panel highlights diversity and inclusion advocates who work to inspire people to connect and reconnect with the outdoors and heritage sites; share their own experiences through digital engagement; and support conservation education.
