We are America Outdoors. And like you, we’re out there – pedaling and paddling, riding and floating, loving that feeling of breathing hard on a trail less traveled. We are an established community of professional outfitters helping people experience the magnificent wilderness, leading one foot in front of the other.

We believe the outdoors should be accessible to all, and we are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion within our industry. Since 1989, America Outdoors has worked to ensure outfitters in the outdoor recreation industry have a voice. Today, we are the one-stop resource for outfitters, leading the industry in public policy.

In addition to advocacy in Washington DC, our mission is to help members connect, grow and learn from one another. As a resource for business expertise, we are the only national membership-led organization uniquely committed to helping America’s outfitting businesses and those who supply them. America Outdoors works to support and enhance outfitters, providing resources that help outfitting businesses thrive.

From training to increase the quality of staff, to managing risk, navigating regulations and business promotion, AO members see real benefits to their bottom lines. Members have access to regular updates, case studies and training tips targeted to share expertise and inspire results. Connect with your fellow members at our annual conference and year-round online events. Our members constitute a powerful community of like-minded people who aren’t just outdoors for a living – we’re in it for life.

Together on rivers and mountains, roads and trails, America Outdoors is here so you can be out there. We invite you to join us to be Where Outfitters Thrive.
