Banded Holdings and SportDOG® Brand renew their corporate partnership

Banded Holdings and SportDOG® Brand both recently returned as California Waterfowl’s corporate partners, renewing their commitment to CWA’s mission to grow the state’s waterfowl populations, wetlands and hunter-conservationist communities.

“We are grateful for Banded’s and SportDOG’s renewed dedication to hunter recruitment and wetland and waterfowl conservation,” said Scott Mueller, CWA vice president for fund and membership development. “Their support is crucial as we continue to fight for California’s hunters and wildlife.”

Banded is committed to its conservation partnerships, said Banded Media Relations Manager Phil Kahnke, and California Waterfowl has been a top associate.

“We are proud to support an organization helping waterfowl and hunters on all fronts,” he said.

SportDOG Brand Director Darrell Douglas said there’s nothing better than “working with groups made up of likeminded hunters and conservationists who are serious about improving habitat for future generations to enjoy.”

“We're especially proud to be affiliated with such a successful organization,” he said.

Corporate partnership with California Waterfowl demonstrates publicly that a company shares a commitment to waterfowl, wetland conservation and to the future of hunting.
