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.

As a mom, you’re not allowed to pick favorites. With a growing baby in my belly and a toddler guiding my daily routines, my own favorites often take a back seat as I make the daily choice to swap healthy foods for junk food cravings and toddler tunes for windows-down, volume-up jams. But when I heard my favorite spa was relaunching its facial program, I felt zero guilt — of the mom variety or otherwise — about taking a morning off and booking myself a nice, long, rejuvenating facial at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia at Comcast Center.
