By supporting the Great American Campout, we are ensuring our wildlife and natural habitats are protected for generations of RVers to come.
Norfolk, Virginia (PRWEB) June 21, 2017
RV Trader recently partnered with Keystone RV, Yogi-Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts and the National Wildlife Federation to support the 13th annual Great American Campout™. Jeff Probst, famed host and executive producer of the long-running hit TV show “Survivor” will be the campaign’s 2017 spokesperson.
The campaign, running until the end of October, enters anyone who pledges to camp a chance to win one of two high-value prizes - either a Bullet Colt RV worth $18,000 or a week-long stay at a Jellystone Park™ with a $500 travel expense voucher and a $250 Jellystone Park™ gift card. As an additional enhancement, the National Wildlife Federation’s Trees for Wildlife™ program will plant 5,000 specially donated, native trees to bolster preservation efforts if 150,000 people pledge to camp.
While the Great American Campout™ campaign spans a six-month period, the partners are encouraging individuals to take part in the Great American Campout Day on June 24. Great American Campout Day is part of June’s Great Outdoors Month, and is meant to build awareness of ways to protect our nation’s wildlife and the places they call home.
“Taking advantage of being outdoors is why many RVers love the lifestyle,” said Paige Bouma, vice president of RV Trader. “It’s a way to get back to nature and spend quality time with family and friends. By supporting and helping garner attention for the Great American Campout™, we are ensuring that our wildlife and their natural habitats will be protected for future generations of RVers to come.”
Collin O’Mara, the National Wildlife Federation’s president and CEO, noted the importance of camping and the outdoor experience in a recent press release: “Reconnecting with nature inspires us to care for what we love and rekindles the conservation ethic that lives inside each of us. When you can be present in nature and experience a connection – when you look into a tree and see the eyes of a great horned owl staring back at you – it reminds us of our responsibility to take action and protect the things we value most.”
