Outdoor recreation is our way of life and an economic powerhouse. In our state, it directly supports 33,500 jobs and $1.2 billion in income, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. (For perspective, that’s more than the number of people working in farming and manufacturing.) For more data about this economy, as well as testimonials from the people driving it, check out the report we published in partnership with Headwaters Economics.

Spotlight: Ah-shi-sle-pah Wilderness Study Area
The Ah-shi-sle-pah Wilderness Study Area is located in northwestern New Mexico and is a badland area of rolling water-carved clay hills. The area is rich in fossils and has little vegetation to conceal geological formations. The thin vegetation includes sagebrush, piñon-juniper, Great Basin scrubland, and grassland. It is a landscape of sandstone cap rocks and scenic olive-colored hills. Water in this area is scarce and there are no trails; however, the area is scenic and contains soft colors rarely seen elsewhere. – https://www.flickr.com/photos/mypubliclands/9504296994
