Through partnerships, the work of the action teams, and coordination involving local, state, and federal government, private industry, and non-profit organizations, the Oregon Outdoor Recreation Network played a key role in tackling projects both large and small that will shape the future of outdoor recreation in Oregon. Overall, the network brought together the right leaders in the state at the right time to get the work done. Review the collective accomplishments of the network in detail in the Oregon Outdoor Recreation Network Sunset Report.
In 2021 the decision was made to sunset the Oregon Outdoor Recreation Network, which had provided the space and the structure to foster a strong and sustainable outdoor recreation sector in Oregon for five years. The network cultivated relationships, organized around shared priorities, and empowered community leaders in our state, providing them with the support and tools to set bold visions and accomplish ambitious goals.
The work of the network will have a lasting impact. The 15-year vision, nine impact areas, action teams, and structured networking brought outdoor recreation stakeholders in Oregon together around a shared vision for our future and laid the groundwork for progress. It inspired participants, activated leaders, and launched a movement built on partnerships and collaboration to support an industry and a way of life for Oregonians, which will lead to healthier people and stronger communities.
