Our final Trainer Course with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department left us feeling optimistic that the Leave No Trace skills and ethics will be spread throughout the entire lonestar state. In addition to the regional state park staff, we had two participants involved specifically in the hunter and boater education programs. We are pleased to see the Texas State Parks incorporating Leave No Trace into many programs ranging from an interpretive guided hike to the two-day Texas Outdoor Family program. We would like to thank the participants for a great course and best of luck with your future Leave No Trace endeavors.
With only one week left in Texas, we have covered over 5,000 miles, and still we are bound to cover just a little more ground in this vast state! We are looking forward to Saturday, when we will join Mike Swope at Kayak Power for a trip on the Trinity River. This will cap off our Texas adventure!
