Where will you spend Memorial Day? The Pike To Peak Team made their reservations for campsites at National Parks in January - or even last year!
At Pike To Peak, our core purpose is bringing our customers top-quality outdoor gear that helps them explore and enjoy the great outdoors. We proudly choose brands that promote sustainability and preservation, as well as exemplify value, durability, and timeless craftsmanship.
This spring, our national parks, monuments, and public lands need our stewardship more than ever.
“The land, the earth God gave to man for his home … should never be the possession of any man, corporation, (or) society … any more than the air or water.” – Abraham Lincoln
On Thursday, July 27, from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, Outdoor Retailer, the Outdoor Industry Association, The Conservation Alliance and Outdoor Alliance will host a march to the Utah State Capitol to celebrate public lands. The This is Our Land march will allow Outdoor Retailer Summer Market attendees to express their support for the outdoor industry’s reason for being: federal public lands, like our national parks and monuments.
“The This Land is Our Land march at summer Outdoor Retailer spotlights that public lands across America are truly the foundation of the outdoor industry, providing incredible landscapes and waterways for people to come together and experience the awe of the outdoors,” said Amy Roberts, OIA executive director. “We aim to communicate that America’s national treasures require investment and effective management today and for generations to come—and they must remain accessible for all Americans.”
Pike to Peak stands united with those seeking to protect the outdoor places we all love.
