Partnership with Leave No Trace makes big impact
A pair of traveling trainers visiting Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument made an enormous impression on how one behaves in the outdoors. Leave No Trace trainers Mark Ardagna and Tara McCarthy traveled from Boulder, Colorado to make a positive influence in a variety of National Monument programs during their four-day stay. The team presented at many National Monument programs as well as an educators reception at The Living Desert Zoo and Botanical Park in Palm Desert. Leave No Trace ethics were learned by Girl Scouts, school teachers, BLM volunteers and the public at booths, workshops and guided hikes. Taking the message of low impact to these interest groups is a giant step in keeping the outdoors pristine for the next user of public lands.
