Never a company to miss an opportunity to show off its community-based or environmentally friendly nature, Subaru is teaming up with the National Park Foundation (NPF) to promote one of the last chances of 2014 to visit a national park for free. On Saturday September 27, the National Parks Service will have the second to last Fee-Free Day of 2014, and Subaru is helping to get the word out.
Subaru is proud to support the work of the National Park Foundation. Many Subaru owners enjoy the outdoors and support environmental conservation and so we want to encourage more people to visit America’s national parks to fully experience the great outdoors,” said Alan Bethke, vice president of marketing, Subaru of America.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt Subaru’s cause that the timing of this fee-free day comes at about the same time as the launch of the all-new 2015 Subaru Outback. With more than 400 national parks in the U.S., the Outback would be an ideal vehicle to load up the family or gear for such a day trip with up to 73.3 cubic feet of storage space (with the rear seats folded flat) and EPA-rated fuel economy estimates of up to 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

Even better, the automaker has donated four of its new Outback wagons to the National Parks Service. Since last year, Subaru says that it has donated more than $1.4 million to the NPF through its “Share the Love” campaign – a program that allows Subaru buyers to select a charity (from a small list) to have money donated to.

In 2014, the National Parks Service has organized a total of nine of these fee-free days but after this month, the only one that remains is on Veterans Day (November 11). And obviously, you don’t have to be a Subaru owner to enjoy this free day at any national park.
