There are some amazing environmental groups out there working tirelessly to preserve our natural spaces. Environmental groups we love and so should you.
jaMo Threads was founded on a core belief that the more people get outdoors and come to appreciate the beauty and fragility of their surroundings, the stronger our voice for responsible land use and development will become. It doesn’t matter if getting outdoors means you’re deep in the backcountry or spending time at your neighborhood park, preserving those open spaces is critical to us as individuals and to society as a whole.
We came to understand the importance of preserving outdoor spaces by using them. And we think that others will as well. In our way, making jaMo Adventure Head and Neck Gaiters is giving individuals a quality outerwear option so they can not only get outdoors, but stay outdoors.
Environmental groups like Protect our Winters, Save our Canyons and the Association of National Park Rangers inspire us with their efforts to educate about preserving our most stunning outdoor spaces. Now you can learn a little more about what they do and why we love them.
Save our Canyons is dedicated to protecting the wildness and beauty of the Wasatch Mountains, canyons and foothills. The group strives to educate the public and further the goals of protecting the natural environments around Salt Lake City. Another goal of Save our Canyons is to get citizens actively involved in public land issues through its extensive volunteering program.
jaMo Threads is headquartered at the base of the Wasatch Mountains and we use the surrounding canyons year round. These canyons are literally our backyard. With the Wasatch Valley growing rapidly it is more critical than ever to protect our outdoor spaces from overdevelopment. We want to continue to enjoy our amazing views, have access to hiking trails and backcountry ski terrain, keep our land and water from becoming polluted…and that is what Save our Canyons is all about.
The Association of National Park Rangers (ANPR) is dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the National Park System and National Park Service. The organization communicates for, about and with National Park Service employees of all disciplines with the belief that the American public and the National Park System deserve the highest, most enlightened level of care and service and that it should be primarily provided by these highly skilled, dedicated employee stewards.

Rangers know the park better than anyone. They can provide some of the best hiking and sightseeing recommendations, including those that may be off the beaten path. Rangers lead a variety of activities including the Junior Ranger program for kids, hikes and nature talks. ANPR is a ensuring that these individuals are getting the support they need to educate visitors about the importance of preserving these spaces and how everyone who visits can be part of that effort.
The WBA is a group of backcountry enthusiast and is a voice for human powered recreation in the Central Wasatch Mountains. This group has grown as part of a grassroots effort involving those who want to develop ongoing policies for responsible land use in the Wasatch Range. Our team at jaMo Threads supports the idea that we must be responsible with our land use and it often seems that those with the resources have the voice. We are so thrilled that there is such a dedicated group representing the human powered voice in the Wasatch Mountains.
Protect our Winters is the leading climate advocacy group for the snowsports community. Their mission is to engage and mobilize the snowsports community to lead the fight against climate change through educational initiatives, advocacy and community-based activism.
We launched with our jaMo Adventure Head and Neck Gaiters because of our love of winter sports. Protect our Winters is actively lobbying in Washington and working with snowsports celebrities to make their voice speaking out against climate change heard.They have engaged snow lovers to join the fight and work to protect what they love through action. We can definitely get behind that.
