Happy Earth Day! We noticed you hadn't had the chance to open this email we sent earlier this week. We'd hate for you to miss out on these exciting updates, so check it out below: 
The annual gathering of the Outdoors Alliance for Kids (OAK) is being held this May 17 - 18, 2022 in Washington, D.C.! OAK Week is a once a year opportunity to network with other OAK members, recognize champions in the field, help shape OAK's campaigns, and make our collective voices heard with agency leaders and in the halls of Congress. 

This year, OAK Week will be in-person, at an outdoors venue in Washington, D.C., with the option to participate virtually.


Participation in OAK Week is free to attend and welcome to OAK members, prospective members, partners, and supporters. 

OAK members are encouraged to invite staff and volunteers from your organization to participate. Please have each individual planning to attend fill out this form so we can plan accordingly.

Don't wait - register today!
