November: The Bigfoot Challenge

November is a month of change and the Bigfoot Challenge is no exception! New challenges have been posted so it's time to get out there Leave No Trace! The November Bigfoot Challenge is sponsored by Grand Trunk!

The first challenge for this month is to organize a family, friend, or neighborhood hike. Go outside, have some fun, and talk about one or more of the seven principles of Leave No Trace. While on your hike, discuss how these principles can be applied to your current adventure!

The second challenge asks you for a double-whammy - clean out your closet AND help the Leave No Trace center for Outdoor Ethics! Starting on November 10th, Leave No Trace is putting on an auction to raise funds for our educational efforts! Clean out your garage/closets/attic, list your items on Ebay's Giving Works and select Leave No Trace as your cause! Select the portion of proceeds you would like to donate to Leave No Trace and help us continue teaching people the importance of Leave No Trace. Please support Leave No Trace any way you can!

The third challenge for the month is simple and effective - like Grand Trunk on Facebook and for every new "like" they receive during the month of November, they will donate $1 to Leave No Trace! Click the link above to check out Grand Trunk's Facebook page and help support Leave No Trace!

Thank you again to this month's sponsor, Grand Trunk! Every pledge to take a challenge will give you an opportunity to win a great prize from Grand Trunk. Find out more about the Bigfoot Challenge and check out this month's calendar of events at the Bigfoot Challenge page!
