Since 1955, Volkswagen has been striving to make the world a more interesting place. With its recent donation of $1.25 million to The Conservation Fund to protect and donate hundreds of acres of land to the U.S. Forest Service, they're certainly fulfilling their dream. Our dealership in Auburn MA is proud to carry models like the Jetta and Golf because we know that this is a company that gives back to the planet. If you've ever visited us from Worcester, you know that these cars are attractive, but Volkswagen doesn't stop there. They've been working on improving the world starting in eastern Tennessee's Cherokee National Forest.

The area they are working to improve is the location of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail, several whitewater rivers, and 12 designated wildernesses. Protecting these will mean a better future for our children, and this initiative is expected to increase the Cherokee National Forest by about 1,500 acres. You love driving Volkswagen models near Westborough; now you can do so with the knowledge that they're improving the world by adding to the 650,000-acre National Forest along the eastern Tennessee border.

If you love the sounds of this initiative, which aims to protect wildlife habitats, cultural resources, improve water quality, and provide recreation and environmental education to all who visit, visit us near Shrewsbury MA to learn more. Maybe you can visit Tennessee's National Forest in your new Volkswagen model.
