Win a Walk on the Wild Side
Stonyfield Farm teams up with the National Outdoor Leadership School to offer eight lucky winners a week-long wilderness expedition

Londonderry, NH – February 21, 2007.  Stonyfield Farm, the world’s leading organic yogurt maker, has teamed with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), the leader in wilderness education, to offer eight lucky winners a chance to walk on the wild side.

A week-long backpacking course in Wyoming, one of the most beautiful and fascinating wilderness destinations in the U.S., is the grand prize in this sweepstakes offered by Stonyfield Farm and NOLS. In addition to learning outdoor skills the winners will develop their leadership and focus on environmental ethics.

Stonyfield Farm and NOLS are already collaborating on the two-year Creating a Climate for Change Tour. Using a bus that runs on recycled vegetable oil collected directly from restaurants and dining halls, NOLS is crisscrossing the country, carrying both organization’s environmental message on climate change and a whole lot of Stonyfield yogurt and smoothies to college campuses and other locations.
