MEMPHIS, Tenn. – This October, Bass Pro Shops is highlighting the leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation by hosting Ducks Unlimited Conservation Month at its participating stores across the U.S. and Canada. Throughout the month, Bass Pro Shops will promote Ducks Unlimited and help raise funds for their mission. Bass Pro Shops customers can donate $2 to Ducks Unlimited and enter for a chance to win one of 10 Bass Pro Shops $500 gift cards.
“DU Month is but one more way Bass Pro Shops Founder Johnny Morris and his staff at Bass Pro Shops support conservation and the Ducks Unlimited mission,” said DU CEO Dale Hall. “His generosity has put DU in front of tens of thousands of outdoors men and women across the country. The fact that Bass Pro is such a strong supporter of DU’s mission speaks volumes about the company and their commitment to conservation.”
Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris has made giving back to conservation a hallmark of the company since he first began selling fishing tackle in the back of his dad’s liquor store in 1971. Over the course of several decades, Morris has dedicated himself to inspiring people, especially youth and families, to love, enjoy and conserve the great outdoors. One way that Bass Pro Shops works on behalf of conservation is by supporting the efforts of nonprofit conservation organizations that share a desire to tackle key conservation initiatives such as fish and wildlife habitat improvements, conservation and outdoor skills education, improving the quality of our lakes, rivers and springs, and conservation advocacy.
The DU Conservation Month promotion runs until Oct. 31 at participating Bass Pro Shops across the U.S. and Canada* and is a great way to support DU while taking advantage of great deals on outdoor gear.
