Bigfoot sighting in the "Peach State"

Molena, GA - Last weekend Team East was in the stormy state of Georgia for a Trainer Course with the Flint River council of the Boy Scouts America. The course was an opportunity for the participants to learn more about the seven principles of Leave No Trace and how to teach minimum impact recreation to others. A surprise visit by Bigfoot allowed for a photo opportunity and a few laughs as the group gathered for the photo above.

Over the two days participants went hands on during demonstrations for various minimum impact recreation techniques training sessions. In the photo above, the group learns more about the principle Minimize Campfire Impacts and the technique used to build a mound fire.

Keep an eye out for team East as we head down into Florida for a few weeks of Leave No Trace trainings and workshops.

All the best,

Jason and Agata
