Ice Age Trail & Park Foundation

Over 12,000 years ago an immense flow of glacial ice sculpted a landscape of beauty across Wisconsin. Today the area is home to the Ice Age Trail. The mission of the Ice Age Park & Trail Foundation  is to create, support, and protect a thousand mile long footpath tracing ice age formations across Wisconsin.  We were fortunate to work with some staff and volunteers while in Wisconsin, and conduct a four-hour awareness workshop.  The big topics of discussion were the 7 principles of Leave No Trace, Authority of the Resource, and campsite selection.  There were lots of good stories shared by all the participants, which made for a very fun and exciting ethics game  to start off the program, and lead in to the importance of Leave No Trace. The Ice Age Park & Trail Foundation is a non-profit member with Leave No Trace, and is celebrating their 50th year as an organization. We would like to thank all the guys for a  fun afternoon, good luck with all of your work, we look forward to working with you again!

Happy Trails,

Alexis & Topher
