???Since the dedication of Yellowstone as the worlds first national park in 1872, Americas parks have been visited by hundreds of millions of people who marveled at their beauty, found peace in their wildness and shared their experience with others.
However, these national treasures need care and support to help them flourish. Years of underfunding and environmental problems such as pollution are threatening our National Park system. To help preserve our national parks and ensure their existence for generations to come, join Nature Valley® and Patricia Shultz, internationally best-selling author of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and travel industry leader, to help support the National Parks Project. This year, the National Parks Project will focus on restorative work at Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Biscayne National Parks. Click here for more information on Nature Valley's National park Project.
To get involved, simply purchase a box of specially marked Nature Valley Bars and mail in your wrappers to the address below:
National Parks Project
PO Box 450328

Nature Valley will not only recycle the wrappers, but will also contribute $0.10 to the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) for every wrapper received (up to $600,000 in total). To learn more about the National Parks Project and how you can make a difference, check outPreservetheParks.com today. And dont forget to visit Nature Valley on Facebook or Nature Valley on Twitter to Like or Follow the brand. Facebook fans can enter to win a trip, as well as share photos and videos of their summer vacations. All of these sites will also feature updates on the restoration projects, as well as videos and pictures from National Parks Project volunteers.
There are many other ways you can enjoy the natural beauty and diverse wildlife of our national parks this summer while supporting the cause. The easiest thing you can do to support the national parks is to experience them for yourself and share them with your family remembering as always to take only pictures and leave your footprints. So grab your backpack, your boots and some granola bars and go soak in the scenery.
