Enjoy a weekend of Earth Day Events with friends and family

FISH CAMP, Calif. (April 20, 2010) –Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite will be celebrating Earth Day (April 22) with a weekend full of family-friendly activities. Just as Earth Day is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation of the Earth’s environment, each activity at Tenaya Lodge is designed to highlight the property’s year-round commitment to being environmentally-friendly.

Beginning with a menu of environmentally conscious meals, Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite’s appetizer special is Sustainable Chili Seared Diver Scallops with Creamy Risotto, Chive Crème Fraiche and Organic Lemon Vinaigrette; and a special entrée, Organic Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Sustainable Airline Chicken Breast and Pesto Mashed Potatoes and Sun Dried Tomato Broth.

The chicken is organic and locally grown at Pitman Farms located in Sanger, Calif. Pitman Farms is known for producing smaller amounts of higher quality birds than traditional farms. The menu’s vegetables are from T.D. Wiley Farms, a small 75-acre farm located in MaderaCalif. that first earned its Organic certification in 1987.   

Outside of the restaurants, guests can enjoy a Morning Earth Day Nature Hike on Saturday, April 24  at 9:30 a.m., followed by a Kids Earth Day Crafts Workshop : Recycled Egg Carton Creatures  and a Nocturnal Earth Day Hike or join Anne Lombardo of the Pacific Fisher Studies at 8:30 a.m., in the lobby, to discuss the rare, nocturnal creature found in the Yosemite region.     

Throughout the weekend, the gift shop will display Environmentally Safe / Recycled Content Retail Items. Along with a purchase of these items, guests will receive a reusable shopping bag.  In addition, the lobby will show a "What's Green at Tenaya" display. 

Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite’s commitment to the environment is demonstrated throughout the year via its GreenPath Program, featuring organic spa products, energy conservation efforts and a significant recycle and reduce waste program (the environmental management program). Earth Day programs for the lodge’s employees include a highway clean-up event and a shuttle for its employees, to encourage car-pooling, of which many already do.
