In by Jenny KordickLeave a Comment

A report released by the U.S. Department of Commerce found that Maine’s outdoor industry made up about 3.6 percent of the total economy.

The numbers show Maine is one of the top five states in the country when it comes to the value of outdoor recreation in the state’s total gross domestic product.

Manufacturing and sales of gear and equipment added $348 million to the economy last year, which is a 21 percent boost from 2020.
