Teaching Leave No Trace

March 2009
LNT Class Participants get in touch with their animal side to learn
about respecting wildlife

Our wilderness Ranger Sharon and I co-taught a Leave No Trace Trainer Course last
weekend.  It was our first class we taught after each taking the Master Educator
Course in Yosemite back in 2006.  Sharon and I met on that trip and who knew we would
soon be working together?  We get along well and have similar ideas thus the course
went well...  And it was a lot of fun!  We all camped out at the ranger station and also
went hiking in the nearby Crafton Hills and also took a drive up to Morton Peak and took
in its fantastic views.  The audience was mostly San Gorgonio Wilderness Association
Volunteers along with one Boy Scout Leader.  Now these folks can take what they
learned and in turn educate the public and spread the message of wilderness ethics and
minimum impact skillls :)
