Nature Valley National Parks Project Preservation, Review & Giveaway












Since the dedication of Yellowstone as the world’s first national park in 1872, America’s 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 and climate change 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.

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

El Paso, TX 88545-0328

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 out PreservetheParks.com  today. 

And don’t 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. 

If you have never had these granola bars, you are in for a great treat!  Crispy and sweet, you would never guess that you are eating something that is good for you!  Great for adults as well as kids, you do not have to worry about the nutrition of these great bars!

Nature Valley and BlogSpark were kind enough to send to my family a great "National Parks Outdoors Pack" that included a box of Nature Valley Bars, a mini backpack, a military grade compass, a solar powered keychain flashlight, a reusable water bottle and a copy of Patricia Shultz's 1,000 Places to See Before You Die: A Traveler's Life List - US and Canada.




Would you like a great Outdoors Prize pack too?  Here is how you can win!

I remember getting lost with my mom and sister, trying to find Big Bone Lick in KY. Also remember having the worst ear infection ever in Yellowstone.

I would really like to see the Grand Canyon!

from the Nature Valley Parks Project blog, I learned that South Dakota is muggy during the summer. Wouldn't have guessed it!

My most memorable trip to a national park was when we went to Yellowstone as kids. We couldn't wait to see Old Faithful, the mud pots, and of course bears in the wild. We were not disappointed as we experienced each of them on our visit.

My dog Zoe and I took a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park a few years ago. While we there we saw a coyote limping along the road near us. We watched him for a while, then put out a bowl of water for him. He limped up to drink it and hung around for a while to see if we had any other goodies for him, then limped away, holding his injured leg up behind him. Thought that was a pretty singular event--until, several miles away from there, I watched a different coyote limp up to a group of people at a picnic area holding *his* injured leg up behind him! They really are wily!! They were faking injuries to get people to feed them! Quite smart and very funny to have witnessed!

Thanks...fun giveaway!

Back in 2002, I got to visit Yellowstone National Park for the first time with my then boyfriend and his mom...itwas the most amazing trip! Just as I was focusing the camera, and Old Faithful was begining to go off...my then boyfriend proposed!!! That was such a special day! We were married a few months later in Chugiak State park, Alaska...
