The Delta Experience

We wrapped up our visit in Mississippi on Friday when we were invited by Todd Davis, Program Coordinator for Outdoor Leadership and Director of Outdoor Recreation, to speak at Delta State University during the Environmental Science Symposium. As one of two guest speakers, we were able to educate over 70 faculty and students about Leave No Trace and how to incorporate the information into their campus lives. Many of the students who attended the symposium will be participating in the amazing trips that Professor Davis will be leading this year, such as a week-long adventure mountain biking in Moab, UT.
One of the benefits of this job is that we not only get to visit and recreate in a wide variety of places all across the country, but we also get to take in some of the local culture while we are there. We certainly were entertained in the Delta. On Thursday night, we attended the Ms. Delta State beauty pageant (a first for us!), then on Saturday, we watched the Men and Lady Statesman's Basketball teams on their home turf. Wooo!
A special thanks to Todd and Krista Davis for hosting and sharing the Delta experience with us.
Happy Adventuring...Kate and Tracy
