Global Owl Project Sponsors & Partners

REI (Recreational Equipment, Inc.) The Global Owl Project very much appreciates the donation of GPS and other field equipment from REI - and in particular thanks Mark Nelson and other REI staff at the Bailey's Crossroads, Virginia store.  REI (Recreational Equipment, Inc.) is the United States' largest consumer cooperative, founded in 1938, with 90 store locations nationwide, as well as mail order and on-line shopping. REI is dedicated to getting folks outdoors for muscle-powered recreation, and to taking an active role in promoting environmental stewardship on a corporate and personal basis. REI is continually involved with a number of outdoor-recreation and environmental non-profits across the country to support programs that get people, especially youth and families, outdoors and aware of the fitness benefits of outdoor recreation, and quality of life benefits derived from maintaining environmental quality of air, water and public lands.
