Outward Bound on Thompson Island

As we travel the country teaching Leave No Trace, we encounter many firsts.  For our last event in Boston Harbor, we had to take a ferry ride to get to the presentation site! That was definitely a first.  Outward Bound Thompson Island has been serving the youth of greater metropolitan Boston for more than 20 years.  They are stewards of Thompson Island in the Boston Harbor Islands National Park Area where their 204-acre campus is the 'Island Classroom' of the Boston Harbor Islands.  We had the pleasure of working with 17 staff that were gearing up for the fall season.  We shared activities that they could use with their students when they come to study on the island. We applaud Outward Bound for reaching out to urban youth in the Boston area and helping them to feel more connected with nature.  Keep up the good work!
Safe travels...Kate and Tracy
