CO BASS Nation and Denver Bassmasters Create Conservation Display at Denver Bass Pro Shop

Larry was kind enough to donate a largemouth bass mount, the pan fish and his time to help build the lower display.  

     Next call was to David King with Mossback Fish Habitat to ask if they wanted to be involved. David and Andy Benson provided a mini version of a Mossback structure and poster for the display.  Mossback Fish Habitat has supplied much of the habitat products used in recent years conservation projects.

     Denver Bassmasters President Brandon Genova gathered information from past and current conservation projects to print and frame for the upper display.  Urbananglersusa was kind enough to do all of the print work and Genova did the framing.

     Conservation Director George Mauries said, “All the people involved help create the vision that we wanted to display.  The passion for BASS Conservation is on display for all to see.  We were informed that this Conservation room is the first and only that Bass Pro will have across the nation.”
