Understanding and Applying New Federal Outdoor Recreation Economic Data in Michigan

What is this program?

Understanding and Applying New Federal Outdoor Recreation Economic Data in Michigan: New Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) reporting, through their Outdoor Recreation Satellite Account first launched in 2019 and updated in November 2020, shows that the outdoor recreation sector contributes $10.1 billion to Michigan’s economy each year. Hosted by MSU Extension, we invite you to join us and the Michigan Outdoor Industry Office, Michigan Economic Development Corporation, and the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable for a webinar-based presentation and conversation with BEA Economist, Mr. Stas Rzeznik. The webinar is intended as an opportunity for state and local partners to better understand the data, underlying methodology, and ask technical questions. Mr. Rzeznik is with the Bureau's Regional Input/Output Modeling System Group and will help participants to explore how the data relates to and can inform Michigan’s state and local economics, labor data, and development strategies.
