The Conservation Alliance welcomes these companies to a list of more than 230 outdoor industry and associated members companies. Each member company pays annual dues into a central fund, and The Conservation Alliance donates those funds to grassroots conservation organizations. The Conservation Alliance donated an all-time high $1.9 million in 2018.

“We continue to attract great companies, large and small, to our organization,” said John Sterling, Conservation Alliance Executive Director. “We take this growth as a sign that brands value our model of companies working together to protect the wild places so important to their customers.”

The new members include a wide range of outdoor industry stakeholders – including manufacturers of outdoor apparel, footwear and nutrition, mountain guides, craft brewers, executive search consultants, accountants and attorneys.

“We are proud to maintain such a diverse membership of companies that comprise the outdoor industry,” said Sterling. “Conservation is one issue that most brands in the industry agree is a top priority. Together, we are working to protect our last wild places.”

In addition to supporting a growing grant fund, new members help build the advocacy voice of The Conservation Alliance during a time when our public lands are increasingly at risk. The Trump Administration has already attempted to shrink the boundaries of two National Monuments, and Congress passed legislation in 2017 to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.

“We have a robust engagement and advocacy program that brings the voices of our member companies to bear on conservation initiatives,” said Sterling. “These new members will help call attention to the economic benefits of conservation when political leaders are prioritizing resource extraction over outdoor recreation.”
