ClimateRide Southern Utah: October 6-10, 2015
There is a ClimateRide planned to take place along Bryce Canyon, Zion National Parks, and Southern Utah, to inspire and empower citizens to work toward a new energy future.
Climate Hike Bryce-Zion is a charitable hiking challenge that explores two of the most epic National Parks in the United States, and a fragile ecosystem at risk from development pressures, climate change, and pollution. By fundraising and participating in Climate Hike, you are promoting understanding of our generation’s greatest threat – and seeing first-hand what is at stake.
Climate Hike Bryce-Zion is more than a hiking trip — it’s an inspiring journey with 25 extraordinary people united by their passion for conservation, sustainable transportation, renewable energy, and preserving our planet for generations to come.
On Climate Hike Bryce-Zion, you’ll spend five days hiking the iconic trails in Southern Utah’s “Grand Staircase”- an immense structure of sedimentary rock layers carved by nature into beautiful canyons and formations. Over five days, you’ll hike in two National Parks – Bryce Canyon and Zion – and several state parks, traversing 30+ miles. Professional guides will accompany us each day to teach us about the area’s unique ecosystem, so you can bring this knowledge home to your community.
Climate Ride events raise money for a collection of innovative organizations including 350.org, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Green America, Climate Counts, 1% for the Planet, San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, Washington Area Bicyclist Association, and Transportation Alternatives.
