Team East Visits the Mountains of Georgia

Dawsonville, Georgia - Today, Team East visited with 3rd graders at Robinson Elementary School, which is nestled into north Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. On a rainy Tuesday, we were in the company of over 100 students across the day who had never heard of Leave No Trace but were able to learn the PEAK principles in just a few classroom sessions.

Across the late morning and afternoon, Team East had the opportunity to introduce activities such as "What Principle Am I?" and "How Long Does It Last" from the PEAK pack as well as "OK! or No Way!" the free down-loadable activity from our website for large groups of kids! The students were excited to discover that taking responsibility for their actions and impacts in nature could be so much fun!

Keep an eye out for the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers in Georgia as we zig-zag our way through the state over the next few weeks.

All the best,

Jason and Agata
