Providing a link between businesses and the conservation community, The Conservation Alliance enables and inspires us to work together across the outdoor industry to protect the wild places vital to our businesses, our consumers, our economy, and our planet.
The Conservation Alliance’s unique approach of pooling together resources across more than 220 sponsoring members enables our efforts to go further—allowing us to do more as a whole for our industry and our environment.
For us, partnering with The Conservation Alliance makes a lot of sense. With 100% of all partner donations used exclusively for land and water conservation initiatives, we see the immediate translation of our resources into the tangible, legal protection of shared wild places. This is not only rewarding and validating, but it allows us to be a part of something much bigger and broader—something that benefits generations to come.
The Conservation Alliance hosts an annual trip to Washington, D.C., where brand ambassadors are invited to join for a day of conservation policy and lobby training, followed by a day of meetings on Capitol Hill. This allows brands to directly engage in policy and bill discussions that impact our collective interests. We are thrilled to participate—enabling our employees to meet with members of Congress from several states to share their passion for the outdoors.
Twice a year, The Conservation Alliance also allows each sponsoring member to nominate and vote for conservation projects that are in need of funding throughout North America. We actively engage our entire employee base to nominate and vote for projects that carry relevance and meaning for our employees, regardless of where they live. We’ve nominated projects like the Gunnison Public Lands Initiative with The Wilderness Society—to designate 140,000 acres of new wilderness area near Gunnison, Colorado—which was ultimately awarded funding.
We’re thankful a portion of our profits help protect the places near and dear to our hearts.
