Outdoor recreation contributes more than $12B to the economy, employs more than 122,000 people and is the primary driver behind the tourism industry. Not only does Utah outdoor recreation create $856 million in state and local tax revenues, it is the reason for $3.6B in wages and salaries*. Governor Herbert created Utah’s Office of Outdoor Recreation January 2013 as a result of the large contribution the industry plays in Utah’s economy. It is the first office of its kind in the country.

Our office aims to establish a nationwide recreation management standard, and ensure that the state’s natural assets can sustain economic growth for years to come. The private sector is a key partner in Utah’s success, and our state is committed to responsibly partnering with the business community.
