Leoniods and Leave No Trace

So far the Leave No Trace Trainers have about 20,000 miles logged on their Subaru.

Subaru's Leave No Trace Traveling Trainings have made their way to Louisiana to help promote outdoor ethics and safe interactions with wildlife. The trainers, Amanda Jameson and Junaid Dawad, will be at the Black Bayou Wildlife Refuge on Friday, November 17, at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, November 18, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Friday night Amanda and Junaid will be outside with visitors enjoying s'mores and the Leonoids meteor shower. Saturday morning they will be holding a Leave No Trace awareness workshop with advice on how to interact with wildlife in the outdoors. Amanda and Junaid are in their seventh month traveling the country in their Subaru.

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics has seven key principles when it comes to enjoying the outdoors.

  1. Plan Ahead and Prepare
  2. Travel and Camp on Durable Ground
  3. Dispose of Waste Properly
  4. Leave What You Find
  5. Minimize Campfire Impact
  6. Respect Wildlife
  7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors
