Confluence of States 

Stewards of Our Great Outdoors

 
 

Nature and Economy go Hand-in-Hand.

We are a bipartisan organization developing a national platform to grow the outdoor recreation industry, protect our nation's wild places and transform conservation into a driver for economic prosperity. We are 10 states strong. We are growing. We are proving the great outdoors are our greatest resource.

 
 
 
 

The economic impact of the industry is undeniable, but with these principles we now have a framework for the industry's political strength..”

Luis Benitez  |  Former DIRECTOR OF THE OFFICE OF OUTDOOR RECREATION INDUSTRY

Our History

The Confluence Accords were first drafted in January 2018 in Denver, Colorado. Created and signed by eight original states, the Accords are an open invitation to every state in the nation. The eight original states are: Colorado, Montana, North Carolina, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, Washington and Wyoming. Coming in 2019 are Michigan and Maine. Now, we are on a mission to get every state involved, at some level, and come together as a nation.
