As you probably know by now, we here at Huckleberry Travel choose one charity to feature each month, and use that good cause to highlight a particular destination or type of travel. It's a way that we can connect two things that we're passionate about: (1) making the world a better place and (2) helping people seeing as much of that world as they possibly can.
Tomorrow is Independence Day in the US, which has us thinking about some of the incredible trips we've had to National Parks across the country. We've driven high into the Rocky Mountains, stood on the rim of a volcano in Hawaii, cruised among glaciers in Kenai Fjords, and seen (terrifying) alligators in the Everglades. America is truly great, when it comes to the beauty of our National Parks. So, for the month of July, Huckleberry Travel will be making a donation to the National Parks Conservation Association, for every new booking that we make for travel to a National Park.
The mission of the National Parks Conservation Association is to protect and enhance America's National Parks for present and future generations. Established in 1919, NPCA is an independent, nonpartisan voice working to address major threats facing the National Park System. They advocate for the national parks and the National Park Service; educate decision-makers and the public about the importance of preserving the parks; help to convince members of Congress to uphold the laws that protect the parks and to support new legislation to address threats to the parks; fight attempts to weaken these laws in the courts; and assess the health of the parks and park management to better inform their advocacy work.
We think that's really important work. So, why not plan that next vacation to see the best of the good ol' USA? We can help you get there, and we can also help conserve those parks for future generations!
