Increase in Recreational Opportunities for Public Lands and Waters
Secretarial Order 3366 directs interior bureaus to create and deliver plans to the Department within 90 days. These plans are meant to increase recreational opportunities on public lands and waters. It also will designate one full-time employee charged to oversee recreational opportunities.
“From my first day on the job, I have made it abundantly clear that we are going to refocus on Interior’s long-standing but recently forgotten recreation mission,” said Secretary Zinke. “We are incredibly fortunate, as Americans, to have amazing public lands and waters to carry out our tradition of outdoor recreation but the Department must continue to create opportunities to increase access for these pursuits.”
