Check out the latest Outdoor Report from Brumidi Group! The Military Veterans in Parks (MVP) Act was introduced in the House, creating two pilot programs – one to build adaptive trails to provide more recreation access for veterans and the broader disability community, and another to increase hiring of veterans in land management agencies.
