Responsible Recreation - It Starts with Youth!

In addition to running a PEAK/Teen activity contest (Check out this month's Bigfoot Challenge), the Center recently added a second deadline to it's Packing with PEAK grant program - August 1, 2010.

PEAK (Promoting Environmental Awareness in Kids) is an educational program that introduces youth to the concepts of environmental stewardship, responsible recreation and the principles of Leave No Trace.

Check out the PEAK page for a more in-depth look at the teaching resources.

As a partnership program between the Center and REI, many REI stores have PEAK resources available to borrow. Check out your local REI for more details
