"Glamping" for Stream Restoration

I’m not sure whether this article’s photo shows an outdoors experience or a display for Bass Pro shop’s new home furnishings department (don’t worry, they don’t actually have one yet). But it is a sign that perhaps the trend we sighted back in August (see “Glamping in Montana“) is continuing. The good news is that the tip money is apparently going to a good cause: “John’s using the tip money left by guests to restore the salmon spawning grounds in the Bedwell River. So far he’s spent $1.5 million rebuilding the river bed that had become silted following indiscriminate logging of the area.” Claire Giblin on Stuff.co.nz.
If that’s what it takes to fund stream restoration, we’re all for it.

  • Uh…yes, Bass Pro DOES have a home furnishings department.

  • That’s what I get for getting stuck in the tackle department…

  • Whether it’s LL Bean, Orvis, Cabelas, or Bass Pro Shops; the reality is that they all make the majority of their profits in the gift/housewares/decor division. And then they turn around and say that women don’t make a significant percentage of sporting goods purchasing decisions. Doesn’t make much sense to me. Or are all you macho fellas sneaking into Bass Pro to buy an apron with a fish on it and an afghan with those cute little raccoons on it to cuddle up in in front of the TV at night?
