Last weekend we headed down to Taos, New Mexico for a Trainer Course with the Rocky Mountain Youth Corp. This course was awesome for several reasons. First, Rocky Mountain Youth Corp is a great organization. They work to preserve and protect the environment by working with youth throughout northern New Mexico. Second, Catherine Smith, our Community and Partnership Coordinator, was able to join us. She was a great asset and we were psyched to have her on the course . Third, Taos has some amazingly tasty New Mexican grub, which we managed to sample before heading back to Boulder.
Next week we will be hanging out at the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics as we prepare for some events that are a little closer to home for Leave No Trace. First up will be RockyGrass Bluegrass Festival in Lyons, CO, were we will be working with KEEN for the campsite competition. So, if you are headed out Lyons to listen to some tunes and you're planning on camping, make sure to stop by the Leave No Trace booth and tell us why your campsite is clean, sustainable and creative and you could win some really good prizes. Hope to see you there!
