Rush Creek Lodge & Spa, located near Yosemite National Park, has rolled out a unique proposition for those eager to lend a hand in the park’s volunteer cleanup initiative.
“Get 10% off lodging and exchange trash for rejuvenating spa treatments!” announced Rush Creek Lodge & Spa on their official website.
This enticing offer is in celebration of 20 years of “Yosemite Facelift,” a collaborative effort with the Yosemite Climbing Association to promote stewardship and volunteerism in local areas.
Marked on the calendar from September 20 to 24 this year, Yosemite Facelift has grown into a significant annual project. It was initiated two decades ago by Yosemite climber and guide Ken Yager, who aimed to preserve the park’s pristine beauty by eradicating litter.
Over the years, participants of all ages and abilities have joined from across the globe, dedicating anything from an hour of simple trail cleaning to several days of major cleanups. These collective efforts have resulted in the collection of over one million pounds of trash in Yosemite during the past two decades.
Nestled just a short distance from Yosemite National Park’s Highway 120 west entrance, Rush Creek Lodge opened its doors on June 24, 2016. The lodge boasts 143 rooms, including suites and hillside Yosemite villas, each featuring decks with nature views and, for most, glimpses of breathtaking sunsets.
Complementing the experience, the expansive 5,000-square-foot Rush Creek Spa, which seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor spaces, offers an array of treatments, including massages and skin-care sessions. The spa also showcases a Himalayan salt block dry sauna, an aromatherapy steam room, a rejuvenating sensory room, a granite waterfall mineral hot tub, and soothing river rock beds.
Rush Creek Lodge & Spa presents two enticing deals for those participating in Yosemite Facelift from September 20 to 24. They can save 10% on lodging rates. Volunteers can also exchange collected trash for a complimentary “feet detox” spa treatment. This exclusive experience, specially crafted for Facelift participants, includes a magnesium foot soak at the spa’s luxurious outdoor lounge, granting access to the spa’s Yosemite-inspired amenities.
For those looking to contribute to the conservation of Yosemite’s unparalleled beauty, these unique offers provide an opportunity to both aid the environment and indulge in relaxation.
