We’re sending out a great big Texas “Thank You” to all of our Whole Earth customers who made the 2013 Chaco Gives Back program a huge success. With your help, the Friends of Enchanted Rock received a $5700 donation from Chaco! The Friends are planning to use the money to publish an Enchanted Rock Climbing Guide that will be pocket-sized, easy to read and cover the trails, routes and ethics of climbing in the park. Once it’s published, the guide will be sold at the Park store. Their next project: a tree and plant guide for Enchanted Rock!

In previous years the Chaco Gives Back funds have been used for projects including retrofitting antiquated plumbing fixtures in the park to low-flow water saving systems, providing funding for visitor trail maps, and improving the trail system by reclaiming areas where small game trails have turned into human ones, causing erosion.

Thanks again for your support!
