America's Great Outdoors:
Protecting America's Great Outdoors From Climate Disruption
A Sierra Club Vision
Launching the America's Great Outdoors initiative in spring 2010, President Obama stated that our nation needs a "21st century strategy for America's great outdoors, to better protect our natural landscape and our history for generations to come."
The Sierra Club could not agree more. Our members across the country have been eager and active participants in the grassroots listening sessions. In addition to our membership, Sierra Club programs reached over 200,000 young people with
outdoor experiences last year, and we were very pleased to be able to engage some of them in the agenda-setting
process through the youth-focused listening sessions. This report captures many of the ideas our members have conveyed to administration officials.
