Fire up your RV and cruise to “Dinosaur” this year for an exciting trip back through time.

About Dinosaur National Monument

Dinosaur National Monument was protected on Oct. 4, 1915, for its, “extraordinary deposit of Dinosaurian and other gigantic reptilian remains of the Jurassic period.” The initial 80 acres that were preserved in 1915 later became 210,000 acres in 1938. The national monument now spans the Utah-Colorado border.

Tons of Anniversary Events

Dinosaur National Monument’s 100th anniversary party will include tons of events inside and outside of the park grounds. The celebration kicked off at the beginning of National Park Week and will continue through the month of October.

Every month is packed with events like bird walks, endangered species talks, Paddlefest at Red Fleet State Park, the Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo, open houses, special exhibits, fee-free days and tons more.

Staying Green in Your RV

4-22-2015-GreenInYourRV

Earth Day is a yearly reminder of how much we need to give back to the environment that gives so much to us. As RV travelers, we already live a relatively green lifestyle, but there are many ways you can make your RV travels even more environmentally friendly. The following are a few simple steps you can take to leave a smaller carbon footprint on your adventures.

Resist Plugging In

Sometimes connecting to electricity at the campsite is necessary, but heading to campsites without hookups is an easy way to force yourself to live minimally. Try to camp for as long as possible without filling your water tanks or using your generator. It’s a great way to conserve water and energy and enjoy more time in the great outdoors.

Establish a Recycling System

You’re probably used to doing some sort of recycling during your RV travels, but it can be easy to limit your recycling because of the small amount of storage space in your home away from home. Make recycling a habit by establishing one of your storage spaces as a permanent recycling center. Use separate bins for paper, cardboard, cans and plastic, and drop them off at recycling centers along your travels. Break down cardboard boxes and crush cans to give yourself more space.

Shop Locally

Steering clear of big box stores and shopping at local farmer’s markets along your travels can make a huge difference in the communities and environments you visit. Buying local, natural and organic foods not only helps the local farmers, but it also supports those who don’t use harmful chemicals in their growing processes. And you get to taste unique and delicious local foods on top of it all.

Start Your Journey at Madison RV

Here at Madison RV Supercenter, we’re ready to help you start your green RV lifestyle. We offer a huge selection of motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheels as well as an array of non-toxic and eco-friendly RV products. Stop in and see us Madison, Ala., six days a week.

A Fee-Free Weekend

The only thing better than visiting a national park is visiting one for free.

Free admission includes all individual entrance fees, transportation entrance fees and commercial tour fees, so everyone has a chance to experience the wonders of America’s national parks.

Junior Ranger Day

Junior Ranger Day is a part of National Park Week dedicated to helping kids learn about the National Parks System and the importance of protecting our country’s natural wonders. Parks invite all young visitors to attend Junior Ranger Day on April 18, where they’ll be sworn in as Junior Rangers and enjoy an array of family-friendly activities.

Earth Day and National Park Week

Earth Day (April 22) falls in the middle of National Park Week, and that means you can help with a number of projects at your favorite national park. Log onto the National Park Service website to see a list of parks with Earth Day projects you can join. The site also offers a number of other ways you can get involved and help preserve these special places.

Start Your Week at Madison RV
