The Obama Administration is holding public listening sessions for their Great Outdoors Initiative where the public gets to tell top administration officials their ideas and priorities regarding conservation and recreation issues. A session is scheduled for Asheville, N.C. on July 15, from 1 to 4pm. Previous listening sessions have taken place in L.A., Grand Island, Nebraska, Annapolis, Md., Charleston, S.C., and Seattle, Washington. The initiative is designed to prioritize conservation issues and help Americans reconnect with the outdoors. Previous sessions have been attended by EPA administrator Lisa P. Jackson and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. Want more boat launches? Want to end mountaintop removal?
