Newsom Administration and Natural Resources Agency Launch Plan for Increasing Access to the Outdoors

On November 15, CNRA announced the release of the Outdoors for All Strategy which provides a blueprint to increase access to the outdoors for all Californians. Increasing access to nature is vital step to create connection and understanding of California’s most pressing climate resilience issues. The Strategy includes six key priorities:

  • Establishes spaces for people and nature to thrive by creating and maintaining more high-quality outdoor spaces of all shapes and sizes, especially in park-limited places;
  • Fosters belonging in the outdoors through policies and programs that build a welcoming and inclusive culture;
  • Connects people and the outdoors by improving information and transportation;
  • Co-creates with communities through frequent and meaningful tribal consultation and community engagement, with attention to underserved communities;
  • Builds equitable career pathways and a representative workforce by improving opportunities for all Californians to enter and sustain outdoor recreation, natural resources and restoration professions;
  • Aligns funding to achieve Outdoors for All in partnership with federal, state, and non-governmental entities.
