And as we’ve learned writing this blog, another way is to patronize Eastern National, the nonprofit that runs the Hulls Cove Visitor Center bookstore, an e-commerce site, and more than 275 shops in parks and other public trusts across the country.

The organization, founded by park rangers in 1947, has donated more than $107 million to National Parks and other sites from Maine to South Dakota.

In honor of Independence Day, Eastern National’s e-commerce site is offering a discount of 17.76% – get it, 1776? – through July 10. See the Affiliated Partners ad on this page. That’s beyond the recent 15% sitewide discount that they’ve been offering. Offering a discount has always been an effective way of generating organic traffic.
