Get Your Goose On!

get your goose onThe U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has introduced a fun outreach campaign called "Get Your Goose On!” that encourages the public to participate in a variety of outdoor recreational activities on National Wildlife Refuges. The campaign features a “Get Your Goose On!” rally towel that supporters of your refuge and the refuge system can pose with as they travel on refuges and around the world and then submit their own photos to a shared Flickr group site.

The Service has launched the campaign (website, news release, video, social media – a full media launch) and believe their outreach activities will generate interest in the towels. They want to offer Friends Organizations the chance to stock these towels in their Nature Stores.

For Friends Organizations who wish to produce and sell their own towels, click here for all of the pertinent details. For Friends that would like to be part of a consolidated order Leigh Ann Vradenburg of the Friends of the Bosque del Apache NWR has placed an order for 100 towels at $7 per towel. If you are interested in being part of this consolidated order, please contact Leigh Ann at friends@sdc.org or 575-838-2120. Leigh Ann will arrange payment with you for the towels and shipping to your site. She will also coordinate discussions with interested groups to determine the appropriate retail price point.

For questions about this outreach campaign, please feel free to contact the “Get Your Goose On” project leader for the Service, Ryan Moehring, at 303-236-0345 or Ryan_Moehring@fws.gov.
