2011 Outdoor Recreation Participation Report
The Outdoor Foundation's fifth annual Outdoor Recreation Participation Report helps a wide range of stakeholders including the outdoor industry, public agencies and community organizations better understand the trends in outdoor recreation participation - enabling groups to address America's inactivity crisis and the disconnect between children and the outdoors. The report is based on an online survey of more than 40,000 Americans ages six and older and covers 114 different outdoor activities, making it the largest survey of its kind.

According to the report, nearly 50 percent of all Americans ages six and older participated in outdoor recreation last year. That equates to 137.9 million Americans. The report is the nation's leading study tracking American participation trends in outdoor recreation with a focus on youth, diversity and the future of the outdoors.
