KEEN to Protect Algonquin Park

Did you know that Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park – Canada’s oldest – is still commercially logged? Clearly, its park status is not quite enough to save all its irreplaceable old-growth pine and spruce groves for our children to cherish.

This is just one more reason to be KEEN: During the month of may, Barrie’s Sojourn Outdoors will donate $5 from every KEEN.CNX footwear purchase to help protect Algonquin Park. And KEEN will donate $5 to CPAWS – Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society – making it a total donation of $10 on each purchase.
