Yesterday we headed to the Berkshire Mountains to work with a great group of outdoor educators at the Manice Education Center in Florida, MA. Manice Education Center offers urban teens a variety of courses in environmental education and wilderness leadership. Students spend up to 11-days on wilderness courses, where they can study local ecology, discuss current environmental issues and learn backcountry camping and traveling skills. We were excited to share some of our favorite Leave No Trace activities (straight from our Teen and PEAK Packs) with the instructors and hope that they will have success sharing these activities with their students this summer.
After our presentation, we headed outside and saw a Red Eft swimming in the lake at Manice Education Center. Then this morning we went for a short hike and spied this little guy sitting on the trail.
