 Many thanks to the 9 students who joined us for our first Master Educator course of 2013! Landmark instructors Justin Doroshenko and Jason Carter had a whale of a good time meeting the students and watching some spectacular examples of teaching Leave No Trace. leave2 Though we had a wet few days in Panthertown Valley, the backpacking field portion provided the perfect setting for our students to show their educational abilities! Perhaps the highlight of the course was the chance to spend Friday at the Oconaluftee Visitor Center in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park doing some Leave No Trace outreach to the visiting public. Our students even took some time to lend a helping hand at the Mountain Farm Museum! leave3 Thanks to all the great students for their hard work and awesome attitudes. Let us know about the great things you're doing with Leave No Trace.
