Last Friday evening we were invited to talk about Leave No Trace with a pack of 14 Cub Scouts and their families in northern Pennsylvania. The opportunity to work with the kids through PEAK pack activities such as Minimum Impact Match allowed us to help the scouts make connections between the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace and enjoying the outdoors responsibly.
The evening wrapped up with a group discussion about the group's next adventure into the outdoors and how to approach outdoor recreation in a responsible way.
Ahead this week the Traveling Trainers visit Princeton University to work with students who will be facilitating outdoor recreation trips for incoming freshman during the fall of 2010.
All the best,
Jason and Agata
