Last month, Wyndham launched its nation-wide conservation initiative Adventure Responsibly, which asks travelers and the public to participate in national park clean-up events. The brand is hosting four clean-up events across the country to not only clean up the parks, but also educate the public on the importance of these efforts.
“Travel to our most precious natural wonders is at an all-time high …” said John Henderson, brand leader, Travelodge by Wyndham. “Unfortunately, as crowds rise, the infrastructure and resources of these amazing destinations becomes increasingly strained, making them more susceptible to pollution and degradation. That’s why initiatives like Adventure Responsibly, and the increasing support of volunteers, is needed now more than ever.”
Travelers can sign up for two clean-up events in September: Bear Mountain State Park in Rockland County, New York, Sept. 5, and at Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana, Sept. 9. Events are held rain or shine. Click here to sign up.
“Many don’t realize how easy it is to coordinate a cleanup event or how our appreciative parks truly are to have the support of their local communities. We want to help change that. Plus, there’s an added perk: whether it’s with family, friends or a combination of both, volunteering often allows for free park access for the day while, more importantly, ensuring you’re giving back and making a meaningful impact along the way,” said Henderson.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
