Join our growing movement!
Our friends at the Wildlife Conservation Society have come up with a great way to celebrate one of the most iconic of American species: the bison. In their own words:
“National Bison Day is Saturday, November 1. It’s a day worth celebrating. Bison, and their dense fur, have long held a central place in American history and culture and they continue to play an important role today.”
So let’s let our hair down and show some support. On or before the day, don your best beard, bison style, and snap a picture. Share it on Instagram taggged #BeardsForBison and watch the love for this American icon sprout.
But wait…there’s more!
As an incentive to get more people to participate, Orvis is running a contest. An elite team of hirsute Orvis staff members will review all the #BeardsForBison entries on Instagram, and select what they believe to be the Best Beard!
The winner will receive an Orvis exclusive Stetson Bison Hat to set off all that magnificent facial hair! The contest runs from 12:00p.m. EDT today until 11:59p.m. Saturday, November 1.
Follically challenged? We’ve got the perfect solution: print one of our stylish fakes. Bison need your help. And who knows? You may even like the look. We’re feeling the #BeardsForBison spirit here at headquarters.
Orvis is a long-time supporter of both the Wildlife Conservation Society and bison. In fact the Company recently awarded a grant to help restore wild bison to the Charles M. Russell Reserve in Montana.
