Discovering Leave No Trace in the Bavarian Village of Leavenworth

We had the fabulous opportunity to spend a week in Leavenworth, Washington, a Bavarian-themed town nestled at the base of the Cascade Mountains. On Friday, we visited the Discovery School for a second visit and had an excellent discussion about outdoor ethics and what motivates us to make responsible decisions in the outdoors.

Later in the afternoon, we had a community wide awareness workshop at Barn Beach Reserve, a sustainably built learning center and reserve whose mission is to provide educational programming and stewardship to celebrate, promote, and conserve the environmental, artistic and cultural heritage of the Greater Wenatchee Valley for the benefit of the local community and its visitors. Participants varied in ages from 7 to 70, but all were equally enthusiastic and open to learning about Leave No Trace.

We would like to extend our warmest "thanks" to our host Hana Butler for making this opportunity possible for the 2010 Traveling Trainers!

All the best,

Jason and Agata
