Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has announced that the department has established a website for youth that will serve as a one-stop shop for information on upcoming outdoor events, job and internship opportunities, educational resources and more. YouthGO.gov was announced during Secretary Salazar's live webchat on the White House website with Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack about President Obama’s America’s Great Outdoors Initiative (see Outdoor USA's past reportage on AGO).
Gerber Legendary Blades was able to raise over twenty-two thousand dollars though the sale of its new Bear Grylls Compact Scout knife over the course of the recent Shot Show in Las Vegas. Proceeds from the sale went directly to the Boy Scouts of America Cascade Pacific Council, which provides services and youth-development programs to families and community organizations in eighteen counties of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.
