Ketchum, Idaho -
Over the past week Team West has been enjoying world class outdoor recreation and educational outreach in the Sun Valley area. Teaming up with old friends at Mountain Niceness Productions, and meeting up with new ones like local outfitter Backwoods Mountain Sports we had the opportunity to get out into some of the most beautiful country we have seen in 2011!
The community in Sun Valley embraced the seven principles of Leave No Trace where ever we had the chance to connect and share the programs we offer on the road as Traveling Trainers. The ethic of stewardship for public land in places like the Sawtooth National Forest is apparent in the responsible actions and attitudes amongst all user groups we encountered.
Keep an eye out for Leave No Trace in Boise later this week as team West visits REI and offers a PEAK workshop on Wednesday evening.
All the best,
Jason and Agata
