Introduction to Recreation Outreach

Recreation Outreach can be used to increase participation in outdoor activities and understand recreation license trends.

For decades there has been a decline in the number of people that are interested in outdoor recreation, prompting the need to understand recreation license trends more deeply and maximize the use of recreation resources. Understanding who has purchased recreation licenses or permits helps organizations target marketing activities and increase retention rates. Providing 24/7 access to recreation opportunities allows you to reach new outdoor license and permit buyers and increase the use of outdoor resources in your community. Recreation Outreach is typically implemented by fish and wildlife agencies, parks departments, and other recreation agencies that want to take a data-driven approach to increasing public participation in outdoor recreation.

The Recreation Outreach solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you understand recreation license trends, engage the public about their recreation experiences, and promote recreation opportunities to the public.
