Maryland Names ‘Outdoor Recreation Ambassadors’
The Maryland Department of Commerce and Maryland Department of Natural Resources have announced that 14 Marylanders from the public and private sectors have been named as the state’s first Outdoor Recreation Ambassadors. As part of their responsibilities, the ambassadors will work to enhance the state’s status as a leading destination for outdoor recreation.
The ambassadors all served as members of the Maryland Outdoor Recreation Economic (MORE) Commission, which was established by Governor Larry Hogan in 2017 to develop strategies and make recommendations to strengthen the state’s outdoor recreation industry and help ensure increased investment in our state’s outdoor recreation resources.
“Maryland is rich with an abundance of outdoor recreation options, from our federal, state and local parks, to our Atlantic beaches and Chesapeake Bay, and mountains to the west,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Kelly M. Schulz. “We are so excited to have all of these outstanding Marylanders help us shine a light on our outdoor recreation industry and its importance to Maryland’s economy and quality of life.”
