Traveling to Leave No Trace

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics works to raise awareness and educate people about reducing their impact on the environment.

Traveling around the country in a Subaru, Amanda Neiman and Gregory Smith are Subaru Traveling Trainers for the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. This Saturday, November 12th at 10 a.m. in the Black Bayou Educational Center, they will be speaking on  techniques and common sense reminders about conserving the environment.

Amanda and Gregory's job is much more than just a 250 day camping trip. The Leave No Trace organization's aim is to spread awareness about proper techniques to preserve outdoor spaces. The workshop this Saturday will focus on practices and principles for being in the outdoors. 

As the east- central part of the Leave No Trace team, Amanda and Gregory travel all around spreading their message. Amanda shares that, "The common problem is litter; we see a lot of trash," when they are on the road. Louisiana has so much water; when trash doesn't end up being thrown away, it can easily make its way into the waterways.

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics is an educational, nonprofit organization. More information on the Leave No Trace Center can be found here
