In March of this year, Maine’s outdoor economy faced an uncertain future.
Sales of outdoor gear plummeted, and events, reservations and trips were cancelled. Our state’s $3 billion outdoor recreation economy came to a screeching halt. And then, just as quickly, a boom: people started biking, hiking, boating and spending more time outside than ever before.
In our latest Making it in Maine video, hear from outdoor brands on how the pandemic has shaped our outdoor economy, renewed our connection to the outdoors and Maine, and given us hope for the future.
