White Mountain Workshops

The past two days have been spent in the White Mountains National Forest of New Hampshire.  We had a program with the Appalachian Mountain Club at the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center, and  2 USFS SACO Ranger District awareness workshops.  The AMC is a partner of Leave No Trace and throughout the summer  has nightly ranger led interpretive programs. The Traveling Trainers have  a history with AMC, doing awareness workshops for families vacationing and staying at the lodge within the White Mountains National Forest.  Our Awareness workshops for the USFS SACO district were held at the Historic Russell-Colbath Homestead, in the restored barn. The Homestead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is a wooden frame dwelling constructed between 1831 & 1832 by Thomas Russell.  The historic site was definitely a beautiful classroom especially to be teaching about the importance of Leave No Trace.  The first workshop with the USFS was an introduction to Leave No Trace, and the second one was a refresher program for Master Educators in the New England area. All three programs were awesome, and scenic with the White Mountains as the backdrop. 

Next programs are a Trainers Training in New Hampshire. 

Happy Trails,

Alexis & Topher
