Outdoor Adventure Commission hosts Wasatch Front Recreation Workshop

SALT LAKE CITY — On October 4, the Outdoor Adventure Commission hosted its Outdoor Recreation Strategic Plan Workshop for the Wasatch Front in conjunction with Utah State University’s Institute of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism. Held at the Petzi American headquarters in West Valley City, the October 4 workshop was the fifth of a series of seven, with the sixth to be held in Ephraim on October 6 and the seventh in Cedar City on October 14.

The workshop is designed to help attendees continue to develop Utah outdoor recreation and includes instruction on how to verify current outdoor recreation assets in Utah, identify threats to the future of outdoor recreation, and create solutions to identified problems.

Pitt Grewem, Director of the Utah Division of Outdoor Recreation, said the following about the workshops:

“These workshops are an essential first step to better understanding and addressing all of Utah’s unique and diverse outdoor recreation needs. This is a great opportunity for us to collaboratively align on a shared vision and strategy to ensure we continue to grow a strong, sustainable outdoor recreation economy that enhances the quality of life for all Utahns by providing the best outdoor experiences possible.”

Utah state legislators created the Outdoor Adventure Commission in 2020, after which the Commission created a strategic plan to meet Utah’s growing outdoor recreation needs. The Commission is made up of 14 different members from “key sectors” of Utah’s recreation economy. The strategic plan is set to be released in the summer of 2023 and will implement insights gained during these fall workshops.
