  • Chaco Gives Back

    Chaco Gives Back returns to Whole Earth Provision Co. starting June 18th and running through July 5th. During these two weeks, for every full price pair of Chaco shoes and sandals purchased at Whole Earth stores, Chaco will donate $5 to the Friends of Enchanted Rock. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is often short of water, so The Friends are planning to use the money raised this year to create a rainwater collection system for the landscaping around the headquarters building. In addition, the Austin North Lamar store will welcome the Chaco Z the World Tour on Friday, July 1st from 1 to 4 pm. Attractions include – free Kona Ice Snow Cones, swag giveaways, games, a chance to try the Chaco 360° virtual reality experience, and an opportunity to enter the Chaco Sweepstakes. The prize: $5000 in airline travel!

    Proceeds from this annual campaign have funded the recycling containers and the water fountain/bottle refilling stations you see at the park.  This year the project will be rainwater collection and irrigation of new interpretative landscaping at the headquarters building.
