Plano Synergy Joins Union Sportsmen’s Alliance as National Conservation Partner

Plano Synergy, a well-known manufacturer of gear for hunters and anglers, has joined the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s (USA) mission to unite the union community to preserve North America’s outdoor heritage. 

USA Director of Corporate Partnerships Brian Dowler said, “Our members, staff and supporting partners are proud to welcome Plano Synergy as a National Conservation Partner as we harness union workers’ power, passion and skills to enhance and ensure opportunities for millions of Americans to enjoy the great outdoors for generations to come.”

Plano Synergy is the parent company to 17 top brands in the outdoor industry, including Barnett Crossbows, Frabill, Plano and Wildgame Innovations. All are dedicated to creating innovative, high-performance products that help users make the most of time spent afield.

"Partnering with the USA to help preserve our hunting and fishing heritage for future generations is a paramount priority and speaks to the core values of all our brands," said Plano Synergy VP of Marketing Pete Angle. "Like the USA, Plano Synergy strongly pursues habitat conservation and new hunter and angler recruitment efforts."

As a USA National Conservation Partner, Plano Synergy will directly support Work Boots on the Ground (WBG), the USA’s flagship conservation program, which organizes union volunteers to complete conservation, public access, education, youth outreach and adult mentorship projects that would otherwise go undone.

Launched in 2010, the WBG program has touched communities in 31 states. The value of donated volunteer labor topped the $1,000,000 mark in early 2019, and the USA’s youth programs will soon reach the milestone of taking more than 10,000 kids fishing.

Dowler said, “In addition, a dedicated portion of Plano Synergy’s commitment benefits our United Outdoors Conservation Fund—an innovative grant funding program that allows the USA to further expand its conservation footprint and mission impact.” 

The Plano Synergy partnership also supports the USA’s popular Brotherhood Outdoors television show, along with the USA Shooting Tour and USA Conservation Dinner program. As a bonus to USA members, select Plano Synergy products will be available at
