SCENIC SAFARIS PLANS TO OPEN SELECT TOURS
AROUND JUNE 15 FOR SUMMER 2020 

Mad River Boat Trips to Remain Closed for the Season 

 

Scenic Safaris, the year-round outdoor and wildlife tour operator specializing in the wildlife and scenery of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and their environs, will plan to open around June 15. The company will offer van tours into the parks, as well as guided and self-guided tours for ATV’s and side-by-side rentals. Also available are self-guided tours for side-by-side rentals in Bridger-Teton National Forest. Scenic Safaris is operated by national park service concessioner Forever Resorts.

Due to public health and logistical considerations, Forever Resorts’ Jackson Hole river rafting outfitter, Mad River Boat Trips, will not operate for the 2020 season. Mad River typically offers whitewater and smooth-water scenic float trips on the Wild and Scenic Snake River with departures from Jackson Hole.

“We are pleased to be able to offer Scenic Safaris tours this summer into some of the American West’s most dazzling national parks,” said John Schoppmann, executive vice president, Forever Resorts. “Our company has always adhered to the highest standards and continually monitors new developments to ensure the health and safety of our guests and employees. While we made the difficult decision to shutter our Mad River operation for this season, we look forward to welcoming our river passengers back to ride the river with us next year.”

In addition to using cleaning and sanitizing chemicals recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Scenic Safaris has implemented the following supplemental standard operating procedures:

  • Guides and guests will be expected to wear proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), where applicable.
  • Guides will maintain a six-foot minimum social distance from guests.
  • Transport vans will be outfitted with social distancing dividers – separating guests from each other and from the guide.
  • Guests will be greeted by office staff wearing PPE.
  • Guests riding ATVs and side-by-sides will be handed disinfected and clean helmets from a secured helmet fitting area. When guests return to the office, they will be instructed to leave helmets outside.

To book a tour, call (307) 734-8898. For information on all of Scenic Safaris’ tours click here.

CARROLL SHELBY FOUNDATION LAUNCHES PROGRAM TO BENEFIT CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE FUND FOR NURSES

CARROLL SHELBY FOUNDATION LAUNCHES PROGRAM
TO BENEFIT CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE FUND FOR NURSES

  • Carroll Shelby Foundation and Carroll Shelby’s Store create program to support nurses on the front lines battling COVID-19
  • A portion of the proceeds from the limited edition t-shirt and decal to benefit the Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses
  • “We are Strong Together” celebrates courage and resiliency

The Carroll Shelby Foundation has launched an initiative through Carroll Shelby’s Store to raise money for nurses on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. A portion of the proceeds from the Shelby “We are Strong Together” t-shirt and decal will go to the Carroll Shelby Foundation to benefit the Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses. Founded by the American Nurses Association, this program provides direct financial assistance to nurses who contract the virus.

“Throughout his life, Carroll Shelby appreciated the many nurses who helped him recover from the injuries he endured as a driver and from two major organ transplants,” said Neil Cummings, Co-President of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “He credited much of his resiliency to their care. Today, nurses are giving the same great care to those battling COVID-19. So the Carroll Shelby Foundation and Carroll Shelby’s Store joined forces to benefit a fund that will support them.”

This Shelby “We are Strong Together” cotton charcoal heather t-shirt and decal proudly display the American flag, an outline of this great nation with the Shelby logo. The graphic symbolizes that like Carroll Shelby, the community can overcome the current health crisis by working together.

The American Nurses Association is the premier organization representing the interests of the nation’s 4 million registered nurses. ANA is at the forefront of improving the quality of health care for all. Founded in 1896, and with members in all 50 states and U.S. territories, ANA is the strongest voice for the profession.

“The ANA is a wonderful organization dedicated to helping nurses reach their full potential,” said Aaron Shelby, Co-President of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “They created a Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses to enable the public to provide care for nurses. This national effort was kicked off with a grant from Johnson & Johnson and is now giving Shelby enthusiasts a way to help through this fund. In honor of Carroll, let’s rally around these heroes on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle.”

The national fund will address the emerging needs of nurses and focus on:

 

  • Providing direct financial assistance to nurses
  • Supporting the mental health of nurses today and in the future
  • Ensuring nurses everywhere have access to the latest science-based information to protect themselves, prevent infection and care for those in need
  • Driving the national advocacy focused on nurses and patients

Sales of the exclusive shirt and decal will continue until the limited edition items are sold out. These items can be purchased by clicking here.

 

About The Carroll Shelby Foundation
The Carroll Shelby Foundation was created by legendary racer and automotive manufacturer Carroll Shelby. Headquartered in Gardena, Calif., the Foundation is dedicated to providing medical assistance for those in need, including children, educational opportunities for young people through automotive and other training programs and benefitting the Shelby Automotive Museum.

When seeking to experience nature on its grandest scale, look no further than Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim inside Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. Sitting at an elevation of more than 8,000 feet, the comparatively tranquil North Rim gets just one-tenth of the visitation of the South Rim and is known for its recreational activities including hiking trails, mule rides and exploring the local flora and fauna.

As a part of this scenic spot since 1928, the Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim, open seasonally from May 15 – Oct. 15, sits just above the canyon with a variety of cabin and motel room choices and dining options.

Cabins at the Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim sit close to the rim, while motel rooms are located within a short walking distance from the lodge. Accommodations offered at the Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim include the following:

  • Western cabins are nestled in the pines and offer two queen-sized beds, a full bath and a front porch.
  • Pioneer cabins sleep up to six people in two bedrooms separated by a ¾ bath with a shower. These cabins offer a queen, a full and a twin bunk bed.
  • Rustic Frontier cabins sleep up to three people with one double bed and one single sized bed. The rooms include a ¾ bathroom with a shower.

All rooms include ceiling fans, standard-view and rim-side views.

The Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim offers several dining choices from quick bites to restaurant options:

  • The Main Lodge Dining Room is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and includes regional dishes as well as cuisine from the 1930s. Offering the freshest and healthiest ingredients, the Main Lodge Dining room serves free-range poultry products, observes the Monterey Seafood Watch program for seafood offerings and serves organic salad greens and pasta.
  • The Coffee Shop is open from 5:30 to 10:30 a.m. for light breakfast options including breakfast burritos, assorted muffins, scones and cinnamon rolls. Also, offered is freshly brewed espresso, cappuccino and coffee.
  • The Roughrider Saloon is available from 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. for a cold beverage and assorted snack options. The Saloon captures a bit of the history of the area and provides and alternative dining option for dinner.
  • The Deli in the Pines is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. for lunch and dinner and offers pre-made salads and sandwiches and other carry-out options.

ABOUT GRAND CANYON LODGE – NORTH RIM
Grand Canyon Lodge – North Rim is the only lodging inside the National Park on the North Rim. Located at Bright Angel Point, the Lodge was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987. The original Lodge was constructed in 1928 and burned in 1932. The current Lodge was rebuilt in 1937 using as much of the original structure as possible. Here guests may enjoy the quiet serenity of the North Rim while enjoying comfortable guest rooms and cabins.  Our cabins were constructed in the 1930’s and 1940’s.  While restrooms and showers have since been added, these cabins retain their original rustic charm.  To this day, not one of the cabins has a television or radio. The Lodge Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. It features regional cuisine; all-natural beef and poultry products are antibiotic and hormone free and the wine list showcases American organic selections available by the glass. Meanwhile the Gift Shop purveys Grand Canyon souvenirs, clothing and accessories. Free self-parking, bus, truck and RV parking are available.
