A Lasting Impact Made Possible By Orvis

Since Orvis joined us as a Founding Partner over a year ago, our efforts to protect rivers and waterways have been amplified. Their support has enabled us to expand our reach and ignite hundreds of people's passion for environmental conservation. Together Orvis and Protect Our Rivers have collaborated on impactful cleanup efforts to remove trash from rivers and streams and helped educate people along the way.

"The Protect Our Rivers team is an incredible group of river runners who are passionate about protecting our waterways for future generations," says Davis James, Denver Marketing Community Leader at Orvis. "Their message is loud and clear; everyone can do something today to benefit river health."

Protect Our Rivers is increasing the magnitude and impact of cleanup events, thanks to partners like Orvis. Last July, we hosted our first cleanup with Orvis and picked up a mile stretch of Cherry Creek, collecting 400 pounds of trash with the help of 40 volunteers. Our second event was even bigger, and we set the record for the number of pounds of trash picked up (1,246 lbs) at a single on-land cleanup event. We've already done two cleanups this season that together had over 500 people in attendance.

Giving back to nonprofit organizations like Protect Our Rivers has been at the forefront of Orvis' mission since day one. Orvis commits 5% of pre-tax profits to protect nature. In the past three years, their Great Giveback Days program has raised over one million dollars for many nonprofit organizations.

Executive Director of Protect Our Rivers, Sarah Nelson adds “We take great pride in being selected as the benefactor for this year's Give Back Days at two Orvis stores and Anglers All, an Orvis dealer. Our deep appreciation goes out to Orvis and their dedication to preserving our planet's invaluable resources. We eagerly anticipate the positive impact that this partnership will continue to bring.”
