Do you C.A.R.E. about your favorite campgrounds?

It's about that time of year for campgrounds across the country to open for the season. Today marked the annual Leisure Systems Inc. Campground Association for Recreation Education (CARE) conference. Over 75 recreation directors, campground owners and managers from Jellystone Parks gathered in Covington, KY to get tips on creating fantastic camping experiences for families. We were invited to speak at the conference and highlight the new partnership between Jellystone Parks and the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. During our 4 hour presentation, the participants were eager to learn about the programs that the Center will be able to offer to their campgrounds all over the US and Canada. We are looking forward to building this partnership throughout the year, as the Traveling Trainers and the e-tour will be visiting some of the Jellystone Parks. Keep your eyes out for us, Yogi, Boo-boo, and all their friends this summer! A special thanks to Kelly Jones for inviting us to be a part of the conference!
Happy Adventuring...Kate and Tracy
