In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service and Earth Day, Sierra Club Ambassador Brooklyn Decker took an amazing zip line adventure through the forest of the San Gabriel Mountains at Big Pines Ziplines.
Located just outside Los Angeles, and now protected as a national monument, the San Gabriel Mountains provide much-needed open space for more than 17 million Southern Californians.
“It’s amazing to have this wild oasis right in L.A.’s backyard,” said Brooklyn Decker. “Whether it’s a place like the San Gabriels, the Grand Canyon, or a neighborhood park I encourage everyone to get outside and enjoy our public lands.”
“The wild is where you find it,” said Dan Chu, senior director of the Sierra Club’s Our Wild America campaign. “As we look to the next century of conservation we want to make sure that everyone is able to enjoy it.”
Decker is zip-lining with two lucky winners selected on Omaze, the experience driven fundraising platform. Fans entered for the chance to win with as little as $10 donations and all funds raised supported The Sierra Club Foundation.
The Sierra Club is organizing 100 outings during Earth Month to celebrate the National Park Service Centennial. Taking place both in cities and wilderness across the country, the outings highlight the diversity of outdoor opportunities provided by America’s public lands.
As part of efforts to encourage everyone to get outside the Sierra Club is also launching a National Park Service Centennial sweepstakes. Participants can follow @sierraclub on Instagram and post a photo of their favorite park or outdoor space with the hashtags #FindYourPark and #SierraOutside for a chance to win outdoor gear and other prizes.
