What is Ducks Unlimited and the Great Northwest Outdoor Expo (GNOE)?
An interactive experience for everything outdoors.
Ducks Unlimited is the largest wetlands conservation organization in the world. Founded in 1937 by hunters and outdoorsman who wanted to give back to the resource they cherish and focus on conservation of our wild areas and habitats. Hunters and outdoorsman today largely support Ducks Unlimited and other conservation programs because of their passion for the outdoors, the outdoor traditions they value, and the hopes of leaving a legacy for future generations through preserving habitat.
Ducks Unlimited held the very successful Great Outdoor Festival for ten years at various locations. This popular gathering is being revived out west in Nampa, Idaho and will be everything outdoors from hunting, fishing, camping, ATVs, sporting dogs, and much more. This “see it, try it, buy it” event is designed to bring together the outdoor businesses and enthusiasts to learn about the latest outdoor gear and tactics. For many, the outdoor adventure is a passion heavily pursued, and for others there is a desire to learn how to make outdoor adventures a positive experience. Our goal is to provide an interactive event where attendees can gain knowledge to help improve their outdoor adventure.
Learn from the hunting, fishing, and camping experts with how-to-seminars, product demos, and the latest gear. Something for everyone from the beginner to the expert.
Our goal with the expo is to educate. Whether you’re a newbie just finishing hunter’s education and gearing up for your first big game hunt or an old pro wanting to learn the latest in GPS technology, there will be opportunities for everyone.
This family-friendly event is Friday, June 7, 2019—Sunday, June 9, 2019.
