Secretary Salazar joined members of Congress, state and local officials and outdoor stakeholders in Vermont, Rhode Island, Maine and New Hampshire to highlight the importance of America's outdoor economy in creating jobs and building strong local economies across the country. Along the way, he toured the parks, refuges and public lands that serve as recreation destinations for tourists and travelers from around the country – helping to create jobs in the leisure and hospitality industry; participate in events that encourage youth to get outside and explore the great outdoors; and visit retail shops and outfitters that help power our nation's economy.
