Overland Equipment, manufacturer of bags that provide well-organized solutions for active, everyday use is pleased to announce that the company is donating $2,500 to a new exhibit and education facility at Bidwell Park’s Chico Creek Nature Center in the company’s hometown of Chico, California.
Overland Equipment raised half the donation through a special event at the recent Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City Utah where show participants were invited to purchase Fall 2009 Overland bags with proceeds going to Chico Creek Nature Center. The company matched the funds raised at the event, dollar for dollar.
â€œOverland Equipment has been deeply rooted in the Chico community for close to thirty years,â€ says Julie Skirving of Overland Equipment. â€œWe are thrilled to make this donation to Bidwell Park so that future generations can discover a love of nature and adventure in this beautiful park that continues to inspire us everyday.â€

About Overland Equipment
For over 27 years, Overland Equipment has designed, developed and manufactured bags with the consistent intent of providing well-organized solutions for active, everyday use. It all started in a Chico, California garage with some cloth, a pair of scissors and a passion for making useful, durable bags. Today, we’re still passionate about creating unique, innovative products. We’ve designed the Overland Equipment line for Fall/Winter 2009 with authentic materials, heavy-duty construction and organization for your everyday essentials. We’ve updated our brand identity, but our bags are still â€“ and always will be â€“ made with the same thoughtfulness, simplicity and natural ruggedness of our Chico roots.
