2014 Preserve A Park Program
Austin Adventures loves its national parks and wants to keep them beautiful for all to enjoy. Each year since 2010, Austin Adventures has selected a non-profit that supports a national park and has donated a portion of the proceeds from the trips run in that park. In past years, donations have gone to the Glacier National Park Fund (Montana), the Yosemite Conservancy (California), Canyonlands Natural History Association (Utah), and Crater Lake Natural History Association (Oregon).
This year, we have selected Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota and the non-profit Friends of Wind Cave National Park. The organization will get $100 for every person that books on the 2014 South Dakota vacation or the South Dakota Family vacation.
Wind Cave National Park is located in Western South Dakota and, in 1903, it became the first cave in the world to be designated a national park. The sixth longest cave in the world; it has 140 miles of explored passage ways and, on average, four miles of new passage ways are discovered each year. Between the beautiful rolling hills scattered with bison, elk, and prairie dogs on the surface and the secret maze known for its “boxwork” and “frostwork” below, this national park makes for quite the adventure.
In addition to exploring the fascinating national park, on these South Dakota adventures you will get to experience the Old West town of Deadwood where Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane once laid the law, and then retrace the historic Mickelson Trail as you pedal the abandoned railroad. Don’t miss the opportunity to see bucket list regulars, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial and to help preserve a beautiful national park on Austin Adventures’ South Dakota vacations.
