Our Newest Networking Tool!

Welcome to the Leave No Trace Community Blog!

We're excited about the possibilities that this blog presents for Leave No trace, and we hope to use this as a tool to build networks on all scales - locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.  We'll be adding new content every day regarding education, membership, research, events, grants, partnerships and general Leave No Trace happenings.

We hope you'll join us in this online community through active dialogue - let us know what is happening in your neighborhood, ask questions, and most importantly, get connected!

I'll leave you with some basic information for you to get connected today:

- Locate your State Advocate
- Discover our free online Teaching Materials
- Contact a Master Educator in your area
- Learn more about our new Connect Grants for culturally-diverse communities

If you have any questions, thoughts or general feedback about the Leave No Trace community blog, leave us a comment!  We'd love to hear from you.

Saw your bulletin on MySpace today. It's great to see you on Blogspot. As an avid hiker and runner, I'm a big fan of Leave No Trace. I encourage you to visit The New Fatherhood and swap links if you dig the site!

HI This is Jo Ann from S. CA: I've been a master educator since 1997 and teach 1 - 2 trainer courses a year. Last month I attended a Sharing Nature with Children workshop taught by Joseph Cornell. Joseph's games and activities are ones I've learned in Project Learning Tree, Project Wild forums. Leave No Trace uses many of these activities. What Joseph Cornell activities teach are an appreciation of nature and becoming one with the outdoor world. Joseph’s workshop reminded me how important it is to use activities that bring about wonder and an appreciation for nature. I plan to add a Sharing Nature activity to my future trainings.
