Conservation Alliance To Launch Conservation Community and Social Networking Site

At ORSM 2008, the Conservation Alliance is launching an incredible new initiative, called ConservationNEXT, which will allow individuals to get involved in the Conservation Alliance and help support their efforts.

The new social networking website will go live the first day of the show, August 8th, and will provide a forum for outdoor industry individuals to engage with Conservation Alliance grantees and increase their involvement in Conservation Alliance initiatives.

For those individuals who have wanted to get involved with the organization but didn't quite know how, now there is a way to inspire and be inspired. ConservationNEXT allows anyone to contribute and participate.

To officially launch the site, ConservationNEXT will host a Booth Crawl at the OR show on Saturday, August 9. Roving happy hour revelers will meet at Osprey at 4 PM to pick up mugs and t-shirts, and share a conservation resolution. They will move to CamelBak and Patagonia at 4:30 PM, to Teva at 5 PM, and roll into The North Face at 5:30 PM. Each booth will host a different Conservation Alliance grantee, which will ask participants to take action at the booth to help their cause.

Check out more about the Conservation Alliance on their website.
