Beginning Backpacking at Miami University

On Wednesday September 22nd we visited with the Outdoor Pursuit Center at Miami University in Oxford, OH to talk about Leave No Trace Frontcountry practices. We met with a Beginning Backpacking class of about 20 students and program staff to discuss how considering the 7 principles of Leave No Trace promotes stewardship of public lands and responsible enjoyment of the outdoors. The students had plenty of personal experiences and opinions about outdoor ethics and were a pleasure to learn with during our time on campus.

A warm thank you to Jen Silica for hosting the Subaru Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers and we look forward visiting again in the future.

All the best,

Jason and Agata
