R3- Recruitment, Retention, & Reactivation – is an ever evolving process.
R3 stands for recruitment, retention, and reactivation and R3 activities seek to create new participants or increase participation rates of current or lapsed outdoor recreationists. Outdoor recreationists engage in outdoor wildlife and fisheries dependent recreation including, but not limited to, hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, photography, education and interpretation. While the reasons for engaging in outdoor activities are more varied than in the past, connecting with nature and each other remains a driving factor for all recreationists.
