Two REI PEAK Trainings in Salt Lake City

This week we had the chance to visit the Salt Lake City and Sandy REI's in Utah to facilitate two PEAK Trainings. The PEAK (Promoting Environmental Awareness in Kids) program is the result of a unique partnership between REI and the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. PEAK is a curriculum of hands-on activities and games to introduce youth to Leave No Trace in a fun and engaging way. We were excited to have so many excellent participants join us for these workshops. Various non-profits and youth-serving organizations were in attendance, including Splore, the Sierra Club, the Boys and Girls Club, and the Girl and Boy Scouts of America.

Check out the Traveling Trainer calendar for the next PEAK Training near you. Our next PEAK training will be on February 16th at the Austin-Gateway REI. If you work with kids and want to teach them about outdoor ethics this workshop is for you!

All the best,

Agata and Jason
