Also in the 7/24/2009 Denver Post article by Steve Raabe, “Sage offers deals to do-gooders,”  Raabe mentioned a discount room promotion called Give and Getaway offered by Broomfield-based RockResorts International for guests who work on designated environmental and conservation projects.  Their website states, “We’ll arrange an environmental conservation project for you, such as light trail maintenance or working on an area community farm, and in return for your volunteer efforts, you will receive a reduced rate on a stay at a luxurious RockResort and complimentary gifts like a reusable, durable hydration pack, soothing hand lotion and more!”

The website lists the various packages available. Some of the ones still coming up include:

Colorado resorts also give all guests the opportunity to donate $1 per room night to the National Forest Foundation. All funds are used to implement on-the-ground conservation projects in recreation, wildlife habitat improvement and stream restoration in Colorado’s White River National Forest.

Sounds like it does great double duty to me!  A fun time doing good work and a great getaway!  Check it out!  I will be in DC for the next two sets of dates so can’t participate – I am bummed!
