Economic Study Showcases Public Lands' Role in Montana's Economy

Business for Montana's Outdoors celebrated a benchmark this summer, with 5 years of work focused on protecting Montana's public lands, access, and the statewide businesses supported by a healthy and growing outdoor recreation industry.

Highlighting a study released by Headwaters Economics, Business for Montana's Outdoors collaborated with the Montana Brewers Association, Senator Jon Tester, REI, and The NorthFace this summer to bring attention and real business voices to the table to share how their businesses benefit from our outdoors. 

The Last Best Outdoors Fest hosted a packed house for a business panel, keynote speaking remarks by Senator Tester, and a research presentation by Economist Ray Rasker.  See the full story here.
