Are you worried about where our country is heading? Do you want to make a difference but aren’t sure where to start? This election is a great place to begin.

We just put this Voters edition together to motivate you to learn more about the companies and organizations that are responding to the issues we face. These are the influential activists urging us to show up to the polls, educating us on how our vote can help save the planet, and putting people in office who will help us protect it.

Tune in to be inspired and educated by some of the most powerful voices in support of our environment in the upcoming election. We’ll chat with:

Chase Huntley, of the Climate and Energy program at the Wilderness Society
Corley Kenna, Senior Director of Communications at Patagonia
Alex Boian, VP of government affairs at the Outdoor Industry Association
Lindsay Bourgoine, manager of Advocacy and Campaigns at Protect Our Winters,
Ahmed Gaya, field director for 1631, the initiative in Washington state that’s on the brink of radically changing the way we consume carbon.

We know you, like us, love the adventures we’ve had here on this planet. We also know you need some positive news about the upcoming election to get you motivated. We hope these guests and this podcast does just that for you. Its almost time for the votes to be counted, and we want to make sure that yours is one of them.

Elections matter and it is critical you get involved and vote on outdoor issues.
We are on the verge of a dawn for a new day. Let’s not miss our chance!
