Business partner, The Northwest Outdoor Store, expands into a meeting place
There’s great support in our community for conservation. From our members and volunteers to local agencies and businesses, we are not alone in the Rogue River region when it comes to enjoying and preserving the great outdoors. Scott Keith, owner of The Northwest Outdoor Store in Medford's Bear Creek Shopping Center, is aligned with the vision of connecting people to nature as a means to save the spaces we love. That is why Scott is a Business Partner in our membership program. Support from businesses like Scott’s helps to ensure the natural wealth of wild, recreational and working lands endures forever, benefiting people, plants and wildlife.
All members of the Southern Oregon Land Conservancy can enjoy the many products and services this “trading post” has to offer with our special 10% discount. In addition to the outdoor clothing, camping gear, field guides, and equipment rentals, the Outdoor Store has expanded its square footage and business model. Scott has created a space for outdoor enthusiasts to gather for a local beer, cider or kombucha as well as warm drinks and a panini sandwiches. The vision is for groups to meet up, park-n-ride in the large parking lot, head out on an adventure, then gather back to reflect with a tasty beverage.
Local outdoor clubs like the Southern Oregon Nordic Club are welcome to host small meetings in the friendly space. Scott installed a vise for tieing fishing flys to support another use of the renovated space. The line of products now includes an Oregon gifts section plus more science, educational and kid’s toys and games. Although still gathering items, Scott has reserved a spot in the shop for high quality used gear on a consignment basis.
We are grateful for the continued support of the Northwest Outdoor Store and their commitment to preserving the natural character and heritage of Southern Oregon. Be sure to follow them on Facebook or email to stay updated on all the exciting developments, sales and events.
