Today, I received a message from the Sierra Club announcing an upcoming PBS series that launches next week from award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns,  ”The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.”

In honor of the series (and to spread the word about the importance of protecting our national parks for future generations), the Sierra Club is giving away a trip to Yosemite and San Francisco as part of the 100,000 Champions for National Parks campaign. Their goal is to get to 100,000 names by October 4th - All you have to do is sign the statement of support for parks at www.sierraclub.org/parks. Tell them your favorite national park and your name will be added to the scrolling list of “Champions for Parks” on their homepage and you’ll be entered in the sweepstakes.

If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that there are a lot of great hiking trails near San Francisco and Yosemite. This area is a paradise for nature lovers. So help out the Sierra Club, support our national parks, and hopefully (cross your fingers) win a trip! Good luck everybody!
