Trainer courses with state park employees always bring years of experience and knowledge to every discussion. The Texas Park and Wildlife Department is embracing the Leave No Trace skills and ethics throughout all of their state parks. They are incorporating the principles of Leave No Trace in the successful Texas Outdoor Family program. We just completed our first of two trainings with staff from a variety of parks at the beautiful Bastrop State Park. With 13 participants, we were able share many ideas about ways they can address impacts that are seen throughout their parks. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our partnership with TPWD at next weeks course in Lake Mineral Wells State Park! We would like to thank Chris Holmes for all his hard work in getting these courses organized.
