San Antonio Outreach


On Friday of last week, we met with ten home-schooled children and their parents to introduce them to the Leave No Trace program. Ranging in ages from 6 to 14, the kids had a great time coming up with creative nature names, deciding how long trash can last, and figuring out the gear they were in Minimum Impact Match. We used several activities from our PEAK (Promoting Environmental Awareness in Kids) program as tools to teach Leave No Trace, and felt that the parents walked away ready to teach the program themselves.

Thanks to Peggy Spring and Stacy Barnwell for putting this event together.

All the best,

Agata and Jason

Thank you for telling me all about that stuff. I did not know it would take 100 years for plastic to turn into dirt.
