This weekend we were lucky to spend two days at the Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney, TX to run a Leave No Trace Trainer Course for staff from the museum. It was absolutely beautiful at the Heard, we couldn't have asked for better weather or location. Six staff members from the museum were eager to learn about the program and ways to incorporate the information into the programs they offer at the museum, future trips they will lead, and at home school programs they facilitate. With so many areas of the sanctuary to explore, we had many teachable moments to utilize on the course. During the course, we even got to paddle, night hike, bird watch, and visit the butterfly area, which houses a lemur family and walleroos! We had such a great time at the Heard Museum and look forward to working with Schelly and the crew in the future!
Happy Adventuring...Kate and Tracy
