YOSEMITE – Yosemite National Park was one of four national parks to receive a 2015 Subaru Outback thanks to a partnership between the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, and Subaru of America, Inc.
Yosemite National Park added the Subaru to its existing vehicle fleet. This fuel-efficient Subaru will help the park reach its goal to become more sustainable and reduce gasoline consumption during normal park operations.
“We are excited to receive this new Subaru from the National Park Foundation,” said Don Neubacher, Yosemite National Park Superintendent. “This vehicle will allow us to easily navigate through all weather conditions in the park for continued and efficient park operations.”
When the 2015 Outback was introduced last year, Subaru and the National Park Foundation partnered to encourage more people to visit and volunteer at America’s over 400 national parks. Since 2013, Subaru has donated more than $2.7 million to the National Park Foundation through its annual “Share the Love” campaign.
“Subaru is proud to expand its support of the National Park Foundation to include the donation of four all-new Subaru Outback vehicles,” said Alan Bethke, vice president of marketing, Subaru of America, Inc. “With its all-wheel drive, ground clearance and rugged capability, the Outback is the perfect vehicle to safely transport national park staff throughout the year.”
