The Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund is supporting the planting of 200,000 trees this year and next through Forests Ontario and their planting partners across Canada – creating and restoring more than 240 acres of forests in communities across the country.

The Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund is supported by customers who round up their purchases at the register and online, helping to shape the future growth and health of the outdoors and all who love it.

The recent donation to Forests Ontario from the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund follows previous contributions in 2022 and 2020 that supported the planting of more than 306,500 trees, making the retailer one of the charity’s most committed, ongoing partners.

“At Forests Ontario, we build strong relationships with a comprehensive network of experienced partners who understand the transformative power of healthy forests – and that includes Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s,” Jess Kaknevicius, Chief Executive Officer, Forests Ontario, says. “We are proud of the healthy, resilient forests we will grow together across Canada and we hope it inspires other corporate partners to support the creation, restoration and care of our natural landscapes.”

Over the past 20 years, Forests Ontario has supported the planting of more than 43 million trees and has earned the title of official Restoration Implementer of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. As an official Restoration Implementer, Forests Ontario has the knowledge and ability to help communities and corporate partners achieve their sustainability goals.
