Appalachian Outfitters is proud to be a Partner level sponsor in one of the biggest outdoor related events Northeast Ohio has ever been a part of. Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia gear and clothing company, has been selected by Case Western Reserve University to receive the Inamori Ethics Prize at Severance Hall in September. So much of our industry and our business is based on the designs and inspirations that Yvon Chouinard has given all outdoor enthusiasts since 1957. Several parts of this celebration are open to the general public, for more information please read the complete press release at:
As part of this prestigious ceremony, we’ll also be hosting, along with support from Patagonia, a private climbing event at Kendall Cliffs. This will be a CWRU student and alumni event to further celebrate the life and accomplishments of one of nature’s biggest stewards and defenders.
