Spring Hill, Tenn.—Plano Synergy, an industry-leading producer of must-have gear for serious hunters and anglers, has joined the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s (USA) mission to unite the union community through conservation to preserve North America’s outdoor heritage.
“The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance is proud to welcome Plano Synergy as a National Conservation Partner as we harness union workers’ power, passion, and skills to enhance and ensure opportunities for millions of Americans to enjoy the great outdoors for generations to come,” said USA Director of Sales and Marketing Jay Stuart.
The outdoor manufacturing powerhouse brings together 14 top brands in the outdoor industry, including Barnett, Frabill, Plano, and Ameristep, to provide hunters and anglers with innovative and high-performance products to help them be successful in the field or on the water.
“Partnering with the USA to help preserve our hunting and fishing heritage for future generations is a paramount priority and speaks to the core values of all our brands,” said Plano Synergy Sr. Sales Manager Jimmy Wren. “Like the USA, Plano Synergy strongly pursues habitat conservation and new hunter and angler recruitment efforts.”
As a USA National Conservation Partner, Plano Synergy will directly support Work Boots on the Ground (WBG), the USA’s flagship conservation program, which organizes union volunteers to complete projects and outreach events that improve public access to the outdoors, conserve wildlife habitats, restore parks, and mentor and engage youth and adults in the outdoors.
Launched in 2010, the WBG program has touched communities in 31 states. The value of donated volunteer labor has surpassed $1.6 million, and the USA’s outreach events have engaged more than 13,000 youth and their families in the outdoors.
A dedicated portion of Plano Synergy’s commitment will also fund an annual project through the USA’s United Outdoors Conservation Fund, an innovative grant funding program that allows the USA to further expand its conservation footprint and mission impact.
In addition, the Plano Synergy partnership will support the USA’s national Brotherhood Outdoors television show, which airs 26 weeks a year on the Sportsman Channel, along with the USA conservation dinner program. USA membership promotions and contests, including USA’s popular Photo of the Month contest, will feature Plano Synergy products. As a bonus to USA members, select Plano Synergy products will be available on the USA’s new online store.
