PROTECT. OUTDOOR. RECREATION.
Yamaha is pledging up to $500,000 in 2019 to help ensure access to public land for outdoor recreation.
Neglect during the Government shutdowns put us at risk of losing access to our public lands and recreation.
Acres of U.S. Public Lands
Access requires constant vigilance and respect; the need never ends. Our public lands are at risk. Whether it’s a lack of public resources, abuse and neglect of lands, or conflicts of interest, our outdoor access and recreation is threatened. The outdoors are there for us all, but we have to work harder to maintain and protect them.
FUNDING ISSUES THREATENING PUBLIC LANDS THIS YEAR:
USFS Maintenance Backlog Prior to Shutdown
Uncollected Entrance Fees During Shutdown
Lost in Outdoor Tourism During Shutdown
The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative supports projects that ensure everyone’s ability to enjoy the outdoors.
Outdoor Enthusiasts in the U.S.
The ability to recreate outdoors depends on responsible, sustainable, and safe access to land.
