In honor of the new MK Family of brands, and to celebrate the idea of kids and families outside together, regardless of the activity, Mountain Khakis, MK Kids and Mountain Sprouts will host the following events at Summer Outdoor Retailer:


To promote the idea of getting into the outdoors with the family, especially in light of the decline in attendance to our national parks, Mountain Khakis and Mountain Sprouts will host the MK Family National Parks Getaway Giveaway at the Summer OR Show.

Highlighting our new direction into youth apparel, Mountain Khakis Kids and Mountain Sprouts will host new-school yo yo prodigy Seth White during the OR Show, to demonstrate tricks using ball bearing yo yos as well as traditional yo yos. Seth, originally from England, is currently residing in Salt Lake City and has studied under National Grand Master Yo Yo Champion Dale Myrberg.
Plentiful amounts of complimentary professional grade standard yo yos will be available in both the Mountain Khakis and Mountain Sprouts booths, and Seth will also be providing instruction on old school yo yo tricks including "Walk the Dog" and "Around the World."
Seth will appear in the Mountain Sprouts booth (35158) from 11 am to 1 pm, and in the Mountain Khakis booth (14005) from 3 pm to 5 pm, Thursday through Saturday.


Mountain Sprouts will pre-sell infant/toddler and youth/junior long sleeve t-shirts from the adorable designs in the “Plug Into Nature” line. The shirts are 100% organic cotton and feature contrast piping at the neck. A staunch believer in and supporter of kids in the outdoors, Mountain Sprouts founder Jen Reike Taylor designed the line to promote the “Plug Into Nature” initiative, which will launch officially at the 2008 Winter OR show. As these new designs are hot off the press, they will ship after the show. The shirts will sell at wholesale between $11 and $13 dollars, and $5 from each sale will go toward the Conservation Fund. The Conservation Fund is a diverse, national non-profit that just launched The National Forum on Children and Nature, and Mountain Sprouts will seek to work in partnership with them moving forward.
