WEST POINT, MS – Mossy Oak Properties is declaring Saturday, September 28, 2019 as the first annual Mossy Oak Properties National Day of Conservation and are challenging the entire outdoors industry to join them in taking action.
Advocating for conservation initiatives and supporting conservation organizations has long been a corporate emphasis of the Mossy Oak family of companies. Mossy Oak is proud to be the official camouflage pattern of DU, NWTF, QDMA, NRA and a proud sponsor of the CCA. In addition to the exponential positive impact these incredible leading organizations have on conservation, Mossy Oak Properties is looking to join forces with the entire outdoors community to preserve and protect the natural resources of our planet’s land and water.
“As my conservation mentor and father [Fox Haas] said best, ‘I believe the good we do will live long after we are gone,’” said Toxey Haas, Mossy Oak Founder and CEO. “The Mossy Oak Properties National Day of Conservation will serve to spread the message of conservation on a grassroots level further, as well as challenge those passionate about the outdoors to take action by completing a project of need in their local community.”
The Mossy Oak Properties National Day of Conservation will mobilize the more than 700 Mossy Oak Properties land specialists across 28 states by challenging them to engage as a team in a conservation activity that will address needs in their local communities or areas. They, along with other members of the Mossy Oak family and ProStaff, covering all 50 states, will extend the challenge to an even broader group, with the hopes of sparking a wildfire of grassroots conservation activities and elevating awareness for conservation efforts.
“Look, it’s the truth; people with a passion for hunting and fishing are truly America’s foremost conservationists,” said Haas. “We all have a responsibility to be the example for others to follow and to leave the land and its resources better than we found them. Conservation is all about ensuring that future generations have access to hunt, fish, and spend time outdoors and that the resources flourish by our efforts. By working together towards that common and noble goal, we can do our part.”
