QWR wants to express our sincere appreciation to our friends at the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) for publishing its 2017 Outdoor Recreation Economy Report. The new OIA report states that outdoor recreation generates $887 billion dollars in consumer spending and employs 7.6 million Americans.

This report highlights and details the significant economic impact that both motorized and non-motorized recreation has in this country.
QWR believes this comprehensive and inclusive report indicates the growing collaboration and partnership between motorized and non-motorized user groups as they work with agency staff and elected officials to support sustainable and diverse recreation opportunities on public lands.
