During RMEF Conservation Month, dedicated Elk Foundation volunteers work with Bass Pro Shops store managers to engage and educate customers about elk and conservation.
“This is the third year that Bass Pro Shops has hosted RMEF Conservation Month in July, and it has produced tens of thousands of dollars and immeasurable public awareness of our organization. We value our partnership with Bass Pro Shops and appreciate the opportunity to utilize their retail locations to support a great cause,” said Bob Swanson, who coordinates the promotion for RMEF.
Swanson said the partnership is being promoted via in-store signage, videos, posters, banners, point-of-sale cards, local chapter events and exhibits, advertisements in Elk Foundation publications, member coupons and more.
Bass Pro Shops says 51 retail stores are involved in the promotion.
