GO APE ANNOUNCES PARK FRIENDS FUNDRAISER!
Support Creve Coeur Park with a Swing Through the Trees
In appreciation for their partnership with St. Louis County Parks & Recreation, Go Ape at Creve Coeur Park announces a Park Friends Fundraiser! On Saturday October 4th and Sunday October 5th, $10 of every ticket sold will go back to the park through a donation to the St. Louis Audubon Society.
“As part of Go Ape's mission to support the parks, we are happy to support organizations, like the St. Louis Audubon Society, that are such worthwhile contributors to the preservation and sustainability of Creve Coeur and other parks across the St. Louis region. I hope that everyone will join us as we raise funds for the Audubon Society while enjoying this exhilarating outdoor adventure.” Dan D’Agostino, USA Managing Director.
Since 2009, St. Louis Audubon (www.stlouisaudubon.org) has been working directly with Parks staff to coordinate community stewardship projects to improve the natural areas of the park for the benefit of birds and other wildlife. To date, that has included 28 separate events with over 1,600 volunteers participating in tree plantings, watershed cleanups and invasive plant removal. Also, the organization funded and installed nest boxes for bluebirds and purple martins and coordinates volunteers to monitor and maintain them. With a focus on birds, St. Louis Audubon provides the general public with field trips, classroom education programs, scholarships, education seminars and hands-on habitat restoration opportunities. Representing over 3,400 members in the 10 county area of Greater St. Louis, it is the largest Audubon chapter in the state of Missouri.
During the Park Friends Fundraiser, guests receive 10% off their ticket when they use promo code “GIVECC” to book at www.goape.com or by calling 1-800-971-8271. With the promo code, every guest who books for October 4th and 5th will receive a 10% discount PLUS $10 of their ticket goes back to the St. Louis Audubon Society.
Park Friends Fundraisers, are just one way Go Ape supports the parks. A portion of every ticket sold throughout the year already goes back to the parks, and throughout the year Go Ape staff also takes part in park cleanups, replanting, and donating free and discounted tickets to underserved and special needs communities. All of Go Ape’s treetop adventure courses; built in partnership with public parks across the country, are taking part in the fundraiser. The company encourages everyone to support the organizations that contribute to their parks and make this year’s Park Friends Fundraiser the most significant yet.
