The Conservation Alliance

Outdoor industry companies joining
together to protect the wild places
that inspire everything we do.

The Conservation Alliance is a group of outdoor businesses whose collective contributions support grassroots organizations working to protect wild places. We became members of the Alliance in 2005 and every year nominate organizations to receive grants from the Alliance fund. These grants allow environmental groups to continue playing key roles in protecting rivers, trails, wildlands and climbing areas throughout North America.

Since beginning in 1989, the Conservation Alliance has contributed almost $15 million to grassroots conservation groups. The results of their funding has helped save more than 45 million acres of wildlands, protect 2,972 miles of rivers, remove 28 dams, designate 5 marine reserves and 11 climbing areas. That’s a feat we are proud to support. And sometimes we even get to support it with our own, dirty hands – every spring the Alliance hosts the Backyard Collective, a day when members and local non-profits come together to work up a sweat restoring the public land in our own backyard.
