Welcome!

The Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education (AORE) is an organization developed by and for outdoor recreation and education professionals and students. Prior to becoming an Association, AORE existed as a loosely knit group of professionals hosting conferences since 1984. Founded at the International Conference on Outdoor Recreation in 1993, AORE is a grass-roots organization dedicated to advancing the field of outdoor recreation and education.

AORE is the premier organization dedicated to serving the needs of recreation and education professionals in non-profit settings. Through AORE, members have a mechanism to interact with and affect decisions made by public land managers and the human powered outdoor recreation industry. AORE is committed to promoting ecologically sound stewardship of the natural environment and serves as a collective voice for its members regarding topics of regional and national concern.

AORE members are comprised of students, professionals, organizations and vendors.

The influence of these programs on future generations of land users is unparalleled within the outdoor industry.
