Future Subaru Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers?



This is Frank (left) and Vern and they are Leave No Trace super heros. We just spoke to 800 Arrowmen in Jackson Hole Wyoming for our last Arrow Corps 5 event with the Boy Scouts. These two Leave No Trace aficionados were able help teach some of our non-stop 30 minutes workshops throughout the day! They were a huge hit and used some crowd pleaser material like Bo jackson and Stanley the Leave No Trace Bear to really illustrate some of the principles. These two friends have been traveling to all five Arrow Corp 5 events throughout the summer, teaching Leave No Trace, trail work, and other important outdoor skills to their fellow Boy Scouts. Big thanks Frank and Vern. Maybe you could be the next Subaru Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers!?!

Swirly Gig,
Tanya and Cody

I just wanted to say that Frank and Vern are our heroes here in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The BWCAW truly misses you fellows this summer. Good luck with the rest of AC5!!!

I have saw Frank put on one of the most entertaining (and informative) "Dispose of Waste Properly" discussions in history at the edge of the BWCA. Vern recites poetry about LNT in the style of a good friend from Arkansas... he uses passion and love to touch the hearts of outdoor enthusiasts who in turn Leave No Trace in their future treks.

We couldn't agree more with Kevin and Travis. We spent most of the time smiling and laughing when Frank and Vern did their presentations. They are a true comedic duo with a wonderful grasp and passion for Leave No Trace.
