Cadiz, KY. Autumn has fallen upon us here in the Southeast. The leaves are beginning to change, the temperatures are dropping, and the fall harvest is abundant. Last week, we had the pleasure of instructing our second Leave No Trace Trainer Course with Kentucky State Parks. We had five engaging individuals that were eager to learn about the Leave No Trace program and put their new found knowledge to the test as we spent one evening camping at Lake Barkley State Resort Park. Four of the new Leave No Trace Trainers were Kentucky State Park employees and we even had one gentleman drive six hours from Missouri to take the course! He is a volunteer with his son's boy scout troop and was excited to challenge the boys to some of the activities he learned during the course.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Lisa Deavers for working out logistics for the course. In addition to being the Western Regional Recreation Coordinator for Kentucky State Parks, Lisa also finds time to be the Leave No Trace State Advocate for the entire state of Kentucky! We look forward to our next adventure with the Kentucky State Park System.
Happy Adventuring...Kate and Tracy
