On Nov. 6, Georgians going to the polls will have an opportunity to vote on Amendment 1, the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Act. The act calls for a percentage of taxes collected on recreational equipment to go toward funding the protection of the state’s natural resources, which will in turn lead to boosting our outdoor recreation economy.

In the video, Thomas Farmer, executive director of the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Coalition, talks about Amendment 1 – and how its passage could impact the state.
