Here at PORTAL®, we inspire and enable everyone to lead active outdoor lifestyles. Whether camping, hiking, or just relaxing outdoors, we want to bring about a future where people of all ages have access to a comprehensive, nurtured network of wilderness and outdoor recreation areas. We also want to help foster a strong connection with the outdoors and feel the strength that nature brings to leisure time and relaxing. This is especially important for our youth and it’s our goal to help them explore more of the outdoors during school adventures and allow them to build a more robust connection to nature while enjoying leisure time with family and friends. In order to combine the spirit of shaping a positive and sustainable future for the outdoors, we have worked to launch corresponding standards for sustainability, ecological balance.
