1. Best part of being an Leave No Trace partner:
The blessing of being empowered to equip more people to practice and teach Leave No Trace principles.
2. Describe a community without Leave No Trace:
A wasteful, narcissistic community that robs the world of natural beauty.
3. Best example of Leave No Trace at work in Solid Rock Outdoor Ministries:
Many of our students and all of our seasonal instructors are Leave No Trace Trainers, and over half of our full-time staff are Leave No Trace Master Educators.
4. Who Solid Rock Outdoor Ministries serves and where:
SROM’s core programming and courses lead individuals into deep wilderness environments in the inter-mountain west.
5. Why does SROM work where we do?
We may be biased, but we think that the Rockies make for incredible programming areas! We’ve found that our location in Laramie gives us excellent access to vast playgrounds such as Medicine Bow National Forest, Vedauwoo, Laramie Peaks, the Snowy Range, the Wind River Range, the Teton Wilderness, the Gros Ventres, the Bighorn Mountains, the Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Red Rocks in Nevada. The inter-mountain west is an amazing programming area for deep wilderness expeditions!
6. Describe a perfect day outside:
Sending ultra-classics in Vedauwoo with friends, then heading back to town to celebrate with a bonfire and slacklining.
7. Can’t go outside without my…
MSR mug and tea steeper modified for coffee brew-ups!
8. Favorite outdoor place:
The incredible Wind River Range, located in central Wyoming.
9. Most forgotten Leave No Trace principle:
Top vote: Leave What You Find – we’ve observed that most people in the outdoors reserve half of their backpack for picking up backcountry souvenirs, including flowers, rocks, pinecones, antlers, artifacts, etc.
