Subaru celebrates its 25th year of partnering with the National Ski Patrol®, and Ambassador Drew Warkentin describes a typical day of working with avalanche rescue dogs.
Drew Warkentin watches as Mookie, a 9-year-old black Labrador retriever with a handsome red collar, paws through a deep pile of snow. Some dogs dig for fun, but this good boy is all business. Warkentin, a ski patroller in the Colorado mountains, has buried a backpack in the snow, and Mookie, an avalanche rescue dog, is trying to find it.
National Ski Patrol® and Subaru celebrate a quarter century of helping others, together.
If you’re a skier, you know the logo: a sleek shield of red, white and blue. It belongs to the National Ski Patrol (NSP), the rescue brigade that grew up alongside the sport of skiing in America. In the 1930s, avid skier Charles Minot “Minnie” Dole founded a safety committee through the National Ski Association; by 1938, the committee had developed into the National Ski Patrol.
Tips to Reduce Your Footprint on Protected Lands, By Olivia Young
Yosemite has been working to reduce its waste through recycling (since 1975), composting (since at least 2009), and decades of education. In 2015, as a result of improved recycling infrastructure and "renewed efforts at visitor education," the park recorded its lowest number of bear incidents: 76. The following year, it announced the Zero Landfill Initiative with Subaru of America, the National Parks Conservation Association, and the Yosemite Conservancy. The initiative set out to divert 80% of its waste from the landfill by the end of 2017. Today, it diverts about 60%.
