Conservation Alliance in Washington DC

Osprey Marketing Director and Conservation Alliance board member, Gareth Martins here. I’m in Washington DC with fellow board member and North Face athlete Conrad Anker and CA Executive Director John Sterling (and his new suit!) We’re thanking our elected officials for their great work in getting the Omnibus Land Bill passed and to encourage them to keep it going by supporting legislation or potential legislation in Colorado, New Mexico, Montana, California, Orgeon, and Idaho.

In a nutshell – the new challenge for our public lands and wild places is balancing the need to support alternative energies, like solar and wind with setting aside lands for human powered recreation. Energy is a BIG topic on the hill right now, but we hope to remind our friends in Congress that wilderness still drives our business. Much more later, signing off from Capitol Hill!!

All dressed up and somewhere to go.
