On Saturday April 17th we met with various Leave No Trace volunteers, educators, and the State Advocate Mr. Griff C. Danheim in Austin, Texas. The meeting served as a forum to discuss Leave No Trace programs and trainings statewide and streamline communication between volunteers and the Center for Outdoor Ethics. Dan Hayes, Outdoor Education Specialist for Texas Parks and Wildlife, educated our group about programs like the Texas Outdoor Family program that teaches frontcountry camping skills and the principles of Leave No Trace to families.
The opportunity to hear from youth serving organization leaders and individuals interested in education around responsible outdoor recreation in Texas was very interesting and we send a warm "thank you" to all in attendance last weekend.
All the best,
Jason and Agata
