Vote to Protect the Outdoor Places You Love

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics was recently named a finalist in the Subaru “Share the Love” event and will be competing against five other charities for a share of $5 million in Subaru funds.

August 8, 2012 (Boulder, CO): The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics was recently chosen to participate in a voting program for the chance to be a part of the 2012 Subaru “Share the Love” event. As part of the event, the Leave No Trace Center would be one of five charities to receive a donation of up to $5 million total from Subaru. Between August 6 and August 26, the Leave No Trace Center, along with five other charities, will compete for one of two remaining spots in this year's event. The two charities with the highest number of votes on the program's Facebook page, http://sharethelove.subaru.com/facebook, will ensure their participation in the 2012 Subaru “Share the Love” event.

As per the event, for every new vehicle purchased or leased from November 21 through January 2, Subaru will donate $250, up to a total of $5 million, to the owner's choice of charities participating in the program. “If we are successful in the Subaru “Share the Love” event, we will be able to reach out to a greater number of outdoor enthusiasts with the Leave No Trace message through our Hot Spots and Backyard Sessions initiatives, and award-winning youth programs,” says Dana Watts, Executive Director at The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.

As early pioneers of the environmental stewardship movement, the Leave No Trace Center continues to lead the way in efforts to promote responsible outdoor recreation among the public. A record number of people are devoting more time to outdoor activities, as evidenced by the increase in state and national park visits over the past few years. The Leave No Trace Center seeks to encourage recreationalists to become responsible outdoor advocates, mitigating human impacts on the environment. Working with volunteers, nonprofit organizations, social groups and governmental agencies, the Leave No Trace Center employs community outreach, education, training, signage, educational material and local collaboration to achieve its mission.
