California State Advocate- Liz Garland Williams
We left Reno and headed up to Lake Tahoe for some great views and new friends at Alexis and Topher's old house in King's Beach. Nice place guys! We hit the slopes the next day at Northstar mountain and then took a nice drive around beautiful blue Lake Tahoe on the way to Sacramento for a PEAK (Promoting Environmental Awareness in Kids) workshop at REI. 25 employees from the Stockton, Roseville, Folsom, and Sacramento REI's came together for a morning full of information, games, and discussions. Thanks to Erin Harrington for coordinating the event and providing breakfast for everyone. Afterwards we met with the wonderful Liz Garland Williams, Leave No Trace California State Advocate. Liz works for the Girl Scouts doing training and programs so her role as the California State Advocate fits quite nicely. California's a big state and there are lots of Leave No Trace events happening. Check out the California community page to see what's happening in your area. Liz says she gets lots of help from various Leave No Trace Master Educators and Trainers all over the state and that she couldn't do it without them. Next stop, Fairfield, CA.
Education in motion,
