Through programming, networking, and outdoor activities, this event focuses on how we strengthen outdoor recreation communities, the outdoor recreation economy, and improve health and quality of life for all Utahns.
Our theme this year is ``Outdoors Elevated`` and the Summit is meant to do just that — elevate the outdoors! We seek to build on the appreciation and admiration for the outdoors and continue to elevate the outdoors, outdoor communities, and the people and organizations who make outdoor recreation possible.
