Water Donation to Lake Mead to Help Save Lives

Bass Pro Shop Donates Bottled Water to Lake Mead Rangers Boulder City, NV

Here’s a good news story for you – the folks at Bass Pro Shop along with Get Outdoors Nevada have teamed up and donated water and needed rescue supplies to our Lake Mead Park Rangers!

Lake Mead is the sixth most visited National Park in the US, with some 8 million visitors each year. And let’s be honest, with the pandemic and folks being cooped up for so long, we’ve had just as many visitors as ever, but some of those folks are maybe less experienced than in years past.

“While our park visitors are out in the park having great adventures across the 1.5 million acres, they often run out of water and end up in severe danger,” said Lake Mead Superintendent Margaret L. Goodro. “We want to make sure our first responders have enough water to save our visitors.

“In these instances, having bottles of water on hand to quickly rehydrate someone in distress can mean the difference between life and death,” said Goodro. “Now, thanks to our partnership with Bass Pro Shop and Get Outdoors Nevada, the park has 2,000 water bottles to help with rescues this year.”

So for our part, we’ll simply say ‘THANK YOU!’

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