For the 4th of July weekend we met up with previous Traveling Trainers, Alexis Ollar and Topher Marlatt at the 20th annual High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, California. We hosted the 2nd annual Red, White, Blue, and Green Campsite Challenge encouraging festival goers to consider the seven principles of Leave No Trace while camping at the festival. We had a number of entries and in the picture above the judge, Jonathan Gelbard, Agata, and Alexis contemplate the entries.
We were excited to award the Grand Prize to Steve Van Zandt and the Banana Slug String Band for their campsite that is pictured above. The winning campsite had recycling and compost receptacles, solar powered lights, a solar shower, as well as creative and festive decorations. The Banana Slug String Band is based in Santa Cruz and is comprised of musicians and educators that bring science and conservation to audiences using music, humor and imagination.
Thanks to Debbie Crockett for making Leave No Trace a part of the High Sierra Music Festival once again.
All the best...
Agata and Jason
