Featured Speaker

James Edward Mills, Journalist & Author of
“The Adventure Gap – Changing the Face of the Outdoors”

James Edward Mills is an adventurer and award-winning journalist and author, who grew up exploring the outdoors with his family. He writes about outdoor recreation, the environment, charitable giving and sustainable living, and minority issues. He’s worked in and written about the outdoor industry since 1989. He lives in Wisconsin with his family.

Mills observes that minority populations are much less likely to seek recreation, adventure, and solace in our wilderness spaces. Mills will talk about this cultural situation and create a compelling case for ALL Americans to enjoy and protect the great outdoors.
