Bass Pro Shops is excited to deliver unforgettable experiences inside the Bass Pro Shops Fishing Village at the Ducks Unlimited Expo (DUX) in May. With product demos, family-friendly fishing activities, and chances to climb aboard boats from some of America’s most beloved brands, this will be a must-see attraction for sportsmen and women of all ages.

Outdoor enthusiasts can get their hands on the latest Bass Pro–branded fishing products and put their skills to the test with a variety of fishing and outdoor-themed activities. White River Marine Group, the marine manufacturing arm of Bass Pro, will showcase some of the industry’s leading boat brands, including Ascend kayaks, the number-one-selling kayak brand in America.

The Bass Pro Shops Fishing Village at DUX also provides an opportunity for North America’s premier outdoor and conservation company to inspire families to make memories together in the great outdoors. Each year, through hundreds of in-store events, seminars, and traveling exhibitions, Bass Pro makes the outdoors accessible to millions of children and families. In the past five years, the company has donated more than 400,000 products to youth-focused nonprofit organizations across North America.

The partnership between Bass Pro Shops and Ducks Unlimited has led to incredible conservation successes, including vast amounts of work done in the Prairie Pothole Region, which is utilized by more than 50 percent of North America’s migratory waterfowl. In the past 10 years, the combined efforts to help reclaim and save habitat in the region have resulted in the protection of 1.8 million acres.
