Conservation Volunteers and Keen announce new partnership

Keen logoConservation Volunteers and Keen are thrilled to announce a partnership celebrating the shared vision of connecting people to the environment.  Keen have donated 100 pairs of their work boots for employees and volunteers.

Conservation Volunteers recruits and manages teams of volunteers from Australia, New Zealand and around the world to work on important environmental and wildlife conservation projects. We inspire change by connecting people to nature and believe in a healthy and sustainable environment, an environment that everyone should be involved in managing and protecting. Conservation Volunteers welcome more than 12,000 volunteers, achieve real conservation results and assist more than 2,000 priority conservation projects every year.

Keen is an American shoe manufacturing company based in Portland, Oregon. Founded in 2003, their shoes are now available in more than a thousand retail locations in the United States, and are distributed worldwide.  Keen are dedicated to building strong communities and a healthier planet.  They do this by inspiring responsible outdoor participation with a focus on land and water conservation.

Through this partnership Conservation Volunteer field staff, those who are out working on projects right across Australia will be decked out with a new pair of Keen boots.   For the many who volunteer on a conservation project, they too will have the opportunity to nab a pair of boots when nominated for the Conservation Volunteer Recognition Award.  Volunteers will also be invited to share their videos, images or stories with CVA for another chance to be rewarded with a pair of Keen boots.

Conservation Volunteer employees will also have access to a range of heavily discounted footwear. Twenty-five dollars will be donated from each pair purchased.  The proceeds from these donations will support the maintenance and construction of tracks and trails in iconic locations across Australia.
