Bass Pro Shop and Get Outdoors Nevada have donated rescue supplies to help save lives at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, America’s first and largest recreation area.

Lake Mead is the 6th most visited National Park unit with about 8 million recreational visits a year.

Bass Pro Shop’s donation to Lake Mead is just the beginning of its partnership aimed at keeping national parks clean, educating youth and saving lives.

While the park has multiple water refill stations and we promote using reusable, refillable water bottles, for the vast majority of the park, there is no water available. Please plan for a gallon of water per day per person when you are out in the park.

Get Outdoors Nevada, Lake Mead’s philanthropic partner, helped foster this new support, and encourages others to show their love for Lake Mead.

Other donation opportunities include first responder rescue supplies, youth education programs, life jacket loaner stations and sponsored clean-up events.
