Gifford Pinchot Trainer Course


Last week, we facilitated a Trainer Course for staff from the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The training took place at the historic Wind River Training Center and offered an opportunity to work with a variety of backcountry rangers, trail crews, and administrative personnel.

The course focused on communicating Leave No Trace practices to various user groups in the field, and provided an opportunity for dialogue among three ranger districts about how they were promoting low impact recreation and stewardship to the recreational communities enjoying the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.


The first picture above shows the whole group in front of our new Subaru Outback! The second picture above captured a moment in which the participants are learning about the principle Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces while enjoying a round of Step On It on the Dry Creek trail. Below the crew celebrates a successful round of Campfire Scramble while learning about alternatives to campfires in the field.


Thank you to Gabe Snider for inviting us to work with the staff in the southern Cascades!

All the best,

Agata and Jason
