President Obama has specifically invited us as Recreationists to be involved in his America's Great Outdoor Initiative, but we are being out voted by the vocal minority who want to kick you of your public lands.

He has asked us to join the conversation by VOTING for IDEAS submitted by the public. This is really EASY to do and only takes a few minutes. His Team will present the results to the President on 11/15/10.

Below are some good ideas that deserve to be PROMOTED and in the box below that are ones that we think should be DEMOTED

If we do not rally and our Ideas are Voted down the message to the President will be to Lock up more of your public lands and Eliminate More Access
