Organizations exist because people care about their outdoor recreation opportunities. In the beginning, organizations formed for social reasons which soon became political reasons to maintain outdoor recreation opportunities. Organizations exist because of members. Members are volunteers and important for the success and effectiveness of any organization.
Volunteers can be activists. More and more, members becoming activists for a few minutes a month are making a difference.
