#33: What's Happening - Thank You Keen Footwear!

We wanted to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to an amazing company that has been a supporter of the Aquarium--Keen Footwear. Since 2004, Keen Footwear has donated 150 pairs of their Newport H2 shoes to us. Keen Footwear not only makes a great product but is dedicated to environmental conservation and social causes around the world. Please check out their website for more information: www.keenfootwear.com.

During these tough economic times, donations are even more important for non-profit organizations like us. We can't thank Keen Footwear enough for their generosity! Meet some Aquarium staff members and volunteers as they show off their Keen shoes.

Thank you Keen Footwear for giving us a reason to smile!

  2. Ha! I was wondering why all the Aquarium people had the same comfy footwear!

  3. Who knew Penguins would be such fans of KEEN? :)

    We made sure to let our Facebook and Twitter groups know about the great work you guys are doing: http://www.facebook.com/editevent.php?gid=22886096083#/notes.php?id=22886096083
