Back to Our Old Stomping Grounds.

After spending the last eight months talking with thousands of people about Leave No Trace, we decided to spend a little more time talking with students at Southeast Missouri State University about Leave No Trace. We joined Dr. Tom Holman and one of his outdoor recreation classes for a weekend backpacking/Trainer Course trip in the Shawnee National Forest. In the first picture, bottom center, is Tom Holman. Top middle is TJ Goldsberry, student instructor. Both are Leave No Trace Trainers. Tom and TJ have been a great advocates for Leave No Trace. Tom is also playing a huge role in developing the outdoor recreation program at Southeast Missouri State University. This was the fourth Trainer Course he has hosted. He recently hosted a Wilderness First Responder Course and is working on putting together a Master Educator Course.

When we returned to Cape Girardeau, Missouri after our travels we were greeted by our biggest fans Arnie and Aspen. We have been spending every moment we can with them to try and make up for missed time.
