Through the recently established Preserve a Park Program, Austin-Leman Adventures will donate a portion of its profits to Canyonlands National Park in Moab, Utah. Throughout the 2010 season, a $100 donation will be made for each guest booked on a small group Arches to Moab Multisport Adventure.
“New guests and our loyal alumni love knowing that a portion of their trip fee helps preserve our national treasures. In fact, in 2010 spaces on our Glacier Park trip sold out in record time. The same happened this year in Yosemite and in 2012. If past history tells us anything, we expect our Canyonlands trips to also sell out quickly,” said Dan Austin, Director of Austin-Lehman Adventures.
The Arches to Moab Multisport Adventure tour includes hiking, rafting and biking throughout Arches and Canyonlands, and an educational component will be weaved into the trip. Guests will bike alongside national monuments and ancient petroglyphs as well as raft along Westwater Canyon on the Colorado River — all the while observing historic evidence of ancient Fremont, Anasazi and Navajo communities. The all-inclusive vacation is priced at $2,398 per person, based on double occupancy. Rates for children age 7 and up start at $1,918 per child.
Austin-Lehman Adventures has launched the Preserve a Park Program in 2010 to support America’s national parks in times of reduced funding. To date, the tour operator has pledged more than $10,000 to non-profit associations affiliated with national parks.
