onX to Host a Live Virtual Event with an Unlikely Coalition of Outdoor Enthusiasts

Hunters, skiers, and off-roaders to discuss how we can all help steward our public lands

onX, a pioneer in outdoor navigation, will host a live virtual event on June 21, 2023 at 6 p.m. MDT called “A Hunter, a Backcountry Skier, and an Off-roader Walked Into a Bar.” While the “bar” is virtual, onX Ambassadors and Partners–including Skull Bound TV’s Jana Waller, MeatEater’s Randall Williams, big mountain skier Griffin Post, off-roader Jeremy Evans, and Tread Lightly’s Matt Caldwell–will metaphorically pull up their chairs to have a frank conversation on how members of different outdoor communities can rally together to protect public lands.

Last year, onX hosted an industry-first event called Shared Ground, inviting representatives across various outdoor activities to discuss land conservation and stewardship. This event was born out of the curiosity of what would happen if these diverse folks walked into a bar and discussed public land usage over a beer. On June 21, onX is bringing that conversation to a public audience–to discuss our outdoor differences (there will be many!) and find a common ground when it comes to enjoying and protecting public land access. 

Event attendees will learn inspiring ways to get involved, and hear how they can help mentor others in their own outdoor communities. Attendees will also have a chance to win a YETI traveling bar set-up valued at over $600, with additional YETI giveaways and a cash-back beverage rebate or chance to win more gear from Sierra Nevada.

The Live Virtual Event is part of onX’s ongoing efforts to inspire outdoor stewardship. According to its recently-released research report, Breaking Trails, outdoor enthusiasts recognize the importance of taking care of our shared outdoor spaces–but only one in five actually engage in stewardship acts on an ongoing basis. The outdoors is suffering from a “stewardship gap.” By rallying together we can help improve the collective outdoor experience.

Live attendance to the virtual event is limited. Attendees can register here: bit.ly/livewithonx

Virtual event participants had the following to say about stewardship:

“My commitment to conservation and stewardship is rooted in an understanding that the outdoor opportunities I’ve enjoyed throughout my life did not happen by accident. They were only made possible by a long tradition of dedicated individuals speaking up for smart policy, helping with hands-on service projects, mentoring newcomers, and in countless other ways strengthening our legacy of shared access to nature.” – Randall Williams, MeatEater senior editor

“Hunting and protecting public land are key components of conservation and wildlife management so that ALL end users can enjoy both.” – Jana Waller, Skull Bound TV host and executive producer

“When you’ve had so many formative experiences in the outdoors, it’s only natural to want to protect and share those spaces.” – Griffin Post, professional big mountain skier

“Living in Oregon has taught me the extreme value and need for protecting our broadline access to public lands for ALL user groups through stewardship activities.” – Jeremy Evans, Public Land Stewards of Bend
