Understanding how your time in the outdoors impacts the environment will help you avoid unnecessary marks of your passing.
This workshop introduces your group to the seven principles of Leave No Trace, and how keeping those principles in mind benefits everyone. As areas become more crowded, minimizing our presence becomes more important. As activities like backpacking, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, and snowshoeing continue to grow in popularity, remote areas such as our state and national forests, the Superior Hiking Trail, the Boundary Waters, and Isle Royale see more and more visitors. What used to be acceptable no longer works.
Through activities and discussions (with almost no lecture!), we explore what it means to Plan Ahead and Prepare, Use Durable Surfaces, Dispose of Waste, Minimize Campfire Impacts, Leave What You Find, Respect Wildlife, and Be Considerate of Others. Use of fun games and activities keeps the workshop interesting and memorable for participants of all ages.
This workshop is not scheduled, so please Contact Me to set up a workshop for your group of 6 or more.
After completing a workshop, participants receive a Leave No Trace certificate.
