Our country is filled with beautiful national parks and wonders. The natural beauty of the land is one of the neatest things that you'll see in your life. I've always loved the wonder of the ocean and the majesty of the mountains. Nothing compares.
Yellowstone was the world's first national park. It's been visited by hundreds of millions of people who just want to come and see the peaceful wildness of the park. Recently there has been concern for our national treasures like this. The national parks have been underfunded and polluted for years.
In order to preserve our parks and natural wonders, Nature Valley and Patricia Shultz, the best-selling author of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and travel industry leader, have the National Parks Project going on this year to help restore work at the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Biscayne National Parks.
Nature Valley is recycling wrappers in select boxes of Nature Valley Bars. And they will contribute $0.10 to the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) for every wrapper received (up to $600,000 in total).
You can help by mailing in your wrappers to: National Parks Project, PO Box 450328, El Paso, TX 88545-0328. And you can find out how else you can make a difference at PreservetheParks.com. You can also make a difference by supporting the national parks when you visit them. Always remember to take only pictures and leave only footprints.
In participating in this campaign to bring awareness to the National Parks Program, I received a Nature Valley prize pack. In addition to Nature Valley Bars, it included a mini backpack; a military grade compass; a solar-powered, key chain flash light; a reusable water bottle and a copy of Patricia Shultz's 1,000 Place to See Before You Die: A Traveler's Life List.
We enjoyed the Nature Valley Bars. They are yummy, crunchy granola bars. I've had several of their varieties and liked them all. My son really enjoyed the Oat's 'N Honey ones that we received.
