What We Do

Fostering Economic Growth From Smart Use of NH Landscapes

New Hampshire’s outdoor recreation industry represents $3.3 billion in the state’s economy. Combine that with the number of businesses, employees, and families of employees that financially rely on jobs supported by the outdoor industry in New Hampshire and you can see why use of these precious natural resources need to be coordinated, conserved and protected.

ORID works closely with industry partners, businesses, non-profits, and recreational user groups to connect our state’s world-class outdoor assets to broad economic development strategies. We ensure the collaborative decisions made now about how to use and enjoy our natural resources are in the best interest of the state, the industry, our businesses, and our residents – both now and in the future.
