Be a Part of the Celebration by Requesting a Visit from the Traveling Trainers during the 2009 Season!
The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers Program celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2009. The teams will continue to visit a wide range of people including (but not limited to) outdoor retail stores, guiding services, educational institutions, national parks and forests, state parks, elementary/middle/high schools, open spaces, municipalities, youth serving organizations, and festivals. In 2009, the Center for Outdoor Ethics will have one team traveling the West and one team traveling the East from January through October. There will be a third team on the road from June 1st-September 1st.
The 2009 Traveling Trainer location schedule is set! In 2009, the teams will actually visit many states twice. Locate your state on the following schedule and plan accordingly. This format was chosen in an effort to regionalize our travel as much as possible and to travel to states during good camping weather. Please note that this is a tentative travel itinerary. If you don’t see your state listed and live in a neighboring state, we encourage you to still request a visit. All requests must be made online. Hope to see you in 2009!
