Help Tourism Cares Save Summer Vacation
June 4, 2012
For many of us, the longer days and warmer nights of summer are here, and with them come vacations and adventures. Whether it’s a family vacation to a national park, a day spent at the seashore, or a road trip with friends, spending time in awe of the historic and natural treasures creates the best memories. But every day we are in danger of losing these places. How often do we tell stories that begin with, "There used to be…"? Too often. Thankfully, though, we have the power to change that.
NTA supporters work in partnership with Tourism Cares to reach out to sites all over the world. In 2011 alone, Tourism Cares gave more than $200,000 through grants and volunteer work to dozens of sites including Yellowstone National Park, Gulf Coast National Seashore and the Maine Maritime Museum. Internationally, Tourism Cares reached to all corners of the world including Egypt’s Antiquities Museum, Mount Matutam in The Philippines and traditional marketplaces in Peru through its inaugural Global Outreach program. The grants continue to fund conservation projects, educational programs and the preservation of important sites.
