White Mountain Day

Camp Dodge, New Hampshire--Earlier this week we had the chance to work alongside two Leave No Trace partners, the National Forest Service and the Appalachian Mountain Club, in preparation for the upcoming 2011 summer season in the White Mountains. The views of the Presidential Range from the training were a little distracting, but the trail crews, backcountry hut staff, and volunteer program guides were stoked to discuss their experiences teaching Leave No Trace in the field. The audience asked great questions about how to introduce the ethics of responsible outdoor recreation with the thousands of visitors they will talk to this season over the course of the day's sessions.

Thanks to Alex Delucia for the invitation to visit with the crews and enjoy the company of so many great friends and supporters of Leave No Trace!

All the best,

Jason and Agata
