MISSOULA, Mont. – More than 6,500 conservation projects completed. Over 5.7 million acres of habitat, mostly on public land, enhanced or protected. Nearly 600,000 acres opened or secured for public access. These and other milestone achievements of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation wouldn’t be possible without partners like Cabelas.
One of the organization’s longest and most generous supporters, Cabelas has announced renewed sponsorship of several RMEF initiatives for 2010.
“Conservation and stewardship of wildlife and wild lands is at the core of our business,” said Cabelas’ Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner. “We’re proud to partner with and support the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation in their efforts to preserve the heritage of conservation that’s so important to our customers and our employees.”
For 2010, Cabelas is again donating gift cards and merchandise used as premiums in RMEF membership drives, contributing items for auctions and other fundraisers, underwriting the RMEF 2010 conservation art print, sponsoring Elk Camp seminars and the Elk Country Legacy mission campaign, and more.
“Cabelas is more than the World’s Foremost Outfitter; it’s one of the reasons why RMEF has become a premier force for conservation. Words don’t express our gratitude nearly as well as our rising numbers of completed projects and conserved acres,” said Steve Decker, vice president of marketing for RMEF.
He added, “We thank everyone at Cabelas for their long and continuing partnership.”
