President Obama Great Outdoors Initiative Speech

On Feb 16, 2011, President Obama gave his remarks on America’s Great Outdoors Initiative, an initiative and effort to develop a 21st Century conservation and recreation agenda. Here, he speaks on their plans, driven by the feedback they gathered over the last 10 months, as members of the presidential administration held more than 50 listening sessions with over 10,000 people -– from hunters and fishermen to tribal leaders and young people.  Together, they’ve laid the foundation for a smarter, more community-driven environmental strategy.
