Giveaway + Review – Nature Valley – National Parks Project

Nature Valley is a fantastic company with some equally fabulous granola bars. What makes me love them even more now though is that they are helping to preserve our National Parks. Companies that give back in a great way make me smile and also want to help out.

Nature Valley granola bars are one of the top granola bars and snacks my family enjoys. It is healthy and gives good nutrition, which is something that isn’t always so easy to find. The prize pack that was sent me to me has so many fun goodies in it (besides the yummy granola). I really enjoyed flipping through the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and seeing which ones I’ve been to already and where I want to go before I die. Love it!

About the National Parks Project
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 today.

All of these sites will also feature updates on the restoration projects, as well as videos and pictures from “National Parks Project” volunteers.
