The 59 Veterans Introduces You to Channel Islands National Park!

Channel Islands National Park

WE’RE READY TO GO ISLAND-HOPPING WITH OUR VETERANS!

Off the coast of southern California, not far from a population of millions, is a beautiful domain: Channel Islands National Park. Consisting of five of the eight Channel Islands in the Pacific Ocean, the national park is rather isolated and relatively undeveloped. It covers 249,561 acres of which 79,019 are owned by the U.S. government. The Nature Conservancy owns and manages 76% of Santa Cruz Island, the largest of the park islands.
Half the park’s area is underwater and contains a unique and rare Mediterranean ecosystem originally settled by the Chumash people. They are home to over 2,000 species of land plants and animals that include the island rushrose, sea-cliff bedstraw, the island fox, bald eagles, orange Garibaldi fish, humpback whales, elephant seals, the California sea lion and giant sea bass. Sailing, snorkeling and scuba diving are a few of the islands’ outdoor activities.

The 59 Vets Takes You to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park!

BLACK CANYON FOG

A NATIONAL TREASURE TO ASCEND WITH VETERANS!

If you enjoy epic mountainous terrain and hiking, sightseeing, RVing, photographing and rock climbing it, then Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in western Colorado is the rough and rugged place for you!

Consisting of over 30,000 acres and established in October 21, 1999, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park “protects a quarter of the Gunnison River, which slices sheer canyon walls from dark Precambrian-era rock. The canyon features some of the steepest cliffs and oldest rock in North America, and is a popular site for river rafting and rock climbing. The deep, narrow canyon is composed of gneiss and schist which appears black when in shadow.”

Boy, this sounds like the perfect place to experience and explore rugged nature and enjoy the company of our military veterans and friends!
