Fresh off the heels of helping to pass one of the most significant legislative actions for the outdoor recreation industry Outdoor Recreation Roundtable (ORR) welcomes its 32nd member, the Professional TrailBuilders Association (PTBA), to what is already a strong, diverse and deep membership.

“PTBA is excited that the trailbuilder perspective will be included in ORR’s broad efforts to support quality outdoor recreation on our nation’s public lands,” said Aaryn Kay, Director of Operations of PTBA. “We are proud to be the newest member of ORR.”

“With the addition of PTBA to ORR, every facet of the outdoor industry is truly unifying around our common issues – from access and infrastructure to conservation and rural revitalization,” said Jessica Turner, executive director of ORR. “PTBA will bring another much-needed voice of access to the outdoors to our coalition. We cannot wait to work with them and welcome them to ORR.”

PTBA is the world’s only private sector group of professional trail contractors, designers, and consultants. PTBA represents more than 100 Member Companies who have been professionally vetted and adhere to a strict code of conduct. Since 1976, PTBA members have designed, built, and maintained thousands of miles of trail. PTBA represents the leading edge in sustainable trail development; we believe in trail design, construction, management and advocacy that enhance resource protection, recreational opportunities, economic development, active citizens, and connected communities worldwide.
