2020 Annual Report

2020 was quite the year, eh? It was a bumpy road for us all, but there were also many wins worth celebrating along the way.

When the pandemic locked us down, we held virtual events where high profile athletes and members of the outdoor members engaged with climate scientists and policymakers.
