We spent a fun weekend at a couple state parks near Billings, MT. We at the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics are excited about our new State Parks Parternship opportunities and Montana State Parks, along with Nevada State Parks, is leading the way in the West. We set up a booth and worked with Darla Bruner at Pictograph Cave State Park on Friday. Then we headed down highway 212 to Cooney State Park to meet with Park Rangers Dave, Sharon, and Cody at this boating hot spot. These rangers sure have their work cut out for them on these busy summer weekends. We hosted two evening workshops at Cooney and talked to folks about front country issues such as litter, visitor conflicts, and pet concerns. We would also like thank Doug and Mike with Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks for some good conversation and insights about Montana's parks and recreational opportunities. If your state park is interested in a partnership with Leave No Trace, please follow this link or visit the parks partnership page on our website.
