March Madness in Georgia!

Kennesaw, GA - While many colleges and universities across the country are focused on the NCAA Men's and Women's Championship games (a.k.a. March Madness), the students at Clayton State University and Kennesaw State University devoted a few hours of their day this week to learn more about Leave No Trace.

We visited Clayton State, a 2010 Connect Grant recipient, on Tuesday of this week and met with students, staff, and faculty. The university's Outdoor Adventure program is a new and growing one that offers a wide variety of trips from service projects in the Okefenokee Swamp to ski trips in West Virginia. Thanks to Nick Kilburg, the Assistant Director of Outdoor Adventure and a Leave No Trace Master Educator, for inviting us!

Today, we presented to students, staff, and faculty at Kennesaw State. The university has great outdoor recreation opportunities on campus, including Nature Bound, an outdoor adventure program organized by the Department of Sports and Recreation and the Center for Student Leadership, and an on-campus Bike Shop that offers free bike services and free mountain bike rentals! Thanks to Wes Riddle and Sandefur Porter for putting this workshop together!

All the best,

Agata and Jason
