Austin-Lehman Adventures Announces 2012 Preserve a Park Recipient:
Utah’s Canyonlands National Park

Will Donate $100 per Guest on All 2012 Arches to Moab Multisport Adventures

Billings, MT, July 11, 2011 – For the third consecutive year a leading adventure travel company will donate a portion of its profits to US National Park preservation through its charitable Preserve a Park Program.

Canyonlands National Park has been selected as the 2012 recipient, announced Dan Austin, Director of Austin-Lehman Adventures (ALA), the award-winning active travel company setting adventure tour standards in the Americas, Europe, Africa and beyond. This park, straddling the Colorado River in Utah, is best known for its 500 square miles of steep, river-carved canyons, multi-colored mesas, sandstone pillars and natural arches.

Launched in 2010 to celebrate and support America’s national parks in times of reduced funding, ALA has pledged over $10,000 to date to non-profit associations affiliated with specific parks.  Canyonlands Natural History Association (CNHA) has been chosen as the 2012 beneficiary; others have been Glacier National Park Fund in 2010, and Yosemite Conservancy in 2011.

Austin notes that in 2011 National Park funding cuts stand at $101 million. Affiliated nonprofits are feeling the same pinch.

Throughout the 2012 season Austin-Lehman Adventures will donate $100 to the CNHA for each guest booked on its small group Arches to Moab Multisport Adventure. See:
