October is Ducks Unlimited Canada Conservation Month at Bass Pro Shops

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 30, 2013) - Bass Pro Shops, one of Canada's premier outdoor retailers, is stepping up to help conserve marshes and ponds across the country for a fifth year in a row.

From October 1 to 31, Bass Pro Shops in Vaughan, Ont. and Calgary, Alta. will promote Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) Conservation Month, a month-long campaign created to encourage customers to make a $2 donation to DUC at the till. Funds raised will go towards DUC's wetland conservation work.

"For many years, Bass Pro Shops has been a strong supporter of DUC, and they continue to raise the bar when it comes to fundraising for wetland conservation on our behalf," says Ed Houck, senior manager of events and volunteer relations for DUC in Alberta. "This year is special, as DUC is also celebrating its 75th anniversary, and we couldn't think of a better time to partner with Bass Pro Shops."

There will also be an opportunity to enter a contest for a chance to win one of 10 $500 Bass Pro Shops gift cards (in US funds). The contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada, and can also be entered online, by phone or by mail in addition to in-store.

Bass Pro Shops is strongly committed to ensuring a bountiful outdoor future for everyone. They recognize that waterfowlers, hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts are also committed conservationists and represent some of DUC's most ardent supporters. With a wide selection of products for all kinds of activities, outdoorsmen are sure to find just what they need at Bass Pro Shops. Every customer who makes a donation to Bass Pro Shops during DUC Conservation Month will be helping to continue DUC's conservation mission and build a healthier world for future generations.
