Grand Opening Events at New Store to Benefit the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies
Filson is proud to partner with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies –the oldest environmental non-profit operating in the Roaring Fork Valley– for the grand opening events of our brand-new Colorado store. ACES is an organization focused on environmental education among youth and adults alike, as well as a major proponent of ecological restoration projects. Both ACES and Filson have complementary views, goals, and seek to foster an honest connection with nature among people. According to Chris Lane, CEO of ACES, “Our values align with the values of Filson, and that fact means a lot to us.”15% of all sales from our grand opening events on Thursday, Dec. 12 and Thursday, Dec. 19th will be donated to ACES. In addition, ACES will offer guided complimentary snowshoe tours to guests at their grand opening events. Filson will also sponsor ACES popular Naturalist Nights presentations — community events put on by scientists and researchers on climate, ecological, and habitat change — throughout the 2014 winter season.
