How You Can Help

When you stay with us, there are a number of things you can do to help minimize the carbon footprint! If you have a suggestion, please let us know. Here is what we recommend.

When you visit our gift shops, purchase souvenirs that are marked as “Environmentally Friendly,” “Recycled Content,” or “Made in USA.”

Help us keep plastic bottles out of the landfill by bringing your own reusable water bottles to fill at our hydration stations located throughout the park. Hydration stations utilize a local natural resource and prevent unnecessary plastic from entering the landfill. Reusable water bottles are also available for purchase at our gift shops.

Conserve water by using sink stoppers to help minimize water waste. Reuse your towels and linens! Simply place our provided card on your bed and the housekeepers will make your bed but not change your sheets. Leaving your towel on the rack means, “I’ll use it again,” a towel on the floor or in the tub means “please exchange”.

Help others in need while diverting waste from the landfill! All partially used hotel amenities are donated to a local homeless shelter. To participate, simply leave your partially used hotel amenities behind; they will be collected by housekeeping staff and set aside to be donated.

Help us keep trash out of the landfill by recycling! Please use our recycling stations located throughout the park and in guest rooms. Glass, Plastic and cans are recycled. If you need to dispose of batteries during your visit, you may drop them off at any one of our gift shops. These batteries are properly recycled through Waste Management’s Battery Tracker program.

Practice the Leave No Trace concept throughout the Park which includes staying on designated trails and discarding trash/cigarette butts in proper receptacles. The National Park Service has a no vehicle idling policy. Please do not idle your vehicle. Help out your fellow guests by adhering to the night sky program; please close your curtains after dark to minimize light pollution.

We appreciate all that our guests do to help keep our park clean and environmentally friendly!
