Vote for Kartchner Caverns in National Contest

Posted By on Mon, Aug 2, 2010 at 2:53 PM

Arizonans are urged to vote for Kartchner Caverns to win $100,000.

From a press release:

Arizonans have an opportunity to help their State Parks win $100,000 by participating online with the "Live Positively, America's Favorite Park Program" being coordinated by Coca-Cola. The "America is Your Park" program was launched today and encourages everyone to vote for a favorite park and then out and recreate.

The staff decided that Kartchner Caverns epitomizes the natural resource stewardship and commitment of Arizonans. Kartchner is now one of the top ten show caves in the world for the diversity of its stunning calcite formations and symbolizes the extraordinary efforts taken by elected officials, park rangers and the public who took unprecedented steps to protect and open this pristine cavern system in 1999. "This living cave has character and a persona. If you haven't gotten a cave kiss from Kartchner Caverns, you haven't lived," says park director Bahl.

While we want you to vote as many times as possible for Kartchner Caverns, it is more important that you also visit your favorite park.

Votes will be tallied on August 31, 2010 so hurry! Vote here.
