Conservation Stories: Keen and Elements Tour Celebrating Nature’s Playgrounds


The work at Conservation Alliance wouldn't be possible without all of our outdoor industry brand members. But a lot of them aren't only involved with Conservation Alliance; many of our member brands are committed to a diverse variety of environmental causes. Every Thursday we'll be featuring a cross-post from one of our member companies to highlight the causes that they're active in. This week we're taking a look at what Keen's currently up to.


Stop #2 on the Playgrounds Re-imagined Tour took the Elements Crew and Baby (the red fire truck that runs off vegetable oil) to Jackson Hole and Driggs, otherwise known as Wydaho. Playgrounds Re-imagined celebrates natures playgrounds in order to inspire others to get out and use them, and to take an active role in protecting them for future generations. The tour is visiting 10 cities across the western US. Learn more at


To kick of the weekend, Baby made her third annual visit to the Tetons Science Schools outside of Jackson Hole, WY.

In support of the Snake River Fund’s Proposition 8, KEEN Retailer Rendezvous River Sports and The Elements Tour took part in an awareness campaign at the Wilson Bridge put-in to celebrate river usage and conservation.
