Venture Outdoors

Venture Outdoors is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to making the outdoor recreation community a vibrant centerpiece of this region. We believe that our region has not yet tapped its assets in outdoor recreation to contribute to a vibrant lifestyle and make this a region people want to call home.

Detailed Information:

The tremendous diversity and richness of our recreational opportunities are obvious to those who hike, bike, climb and paddle in this region. Unfortunately, this awareness does not extend to those without a personal network of contacts.
Without an effective infrastructure to inform and engage novices and new residents, the prevailing lack of awareness will continue to hinder participation, especially by young, active adults. In partnership with existing outdoor organizations, Venture Outdoors seeks to provide that infrastructure.

Western Pennsylvania and nearby sections of West Virginia and Ohio contain a wide variety of beautiful and accessible outdoor places. The opportunities to participate in many types of outdoor recreation activities are equal to those of any other region of the country.

As this region works hard to maintain and/or grow its population base, create a place where people want to live and continue to stimulate economic development, our many nearby outdoor attractions could and should provide a focal point of activities and pride for residents and visitors alike.

Accordingly, the Venture Outdoors will provide that focal point. We will increase awareness of, participation in and appreciation for our many regional outdoor amenities while creating a sense that ours is an active, vibrant and fun place to live, work and play.
