<p>The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers Northeast Team will be working with AmeriCorps Cape Cod for an extended training. AmeriCorps Cape Cod is a yearlong service program with four focus areas: natural resource management, education, volunteer and community engagement, and disaster preparedness. We have 32 members who all work to varying degrees on each of these issues on Cape Cod. For more info on AmeriCorps Cape Cod, you can look at our website:&nbsp;</p>
<p>Many of our members are educators for the youth and senior populations on Cape Cod, or work with specific towns on land stewardship projects. We serve as guides, conservation assistants, trail builders, and educators, and also use Cape Cod&#39;s natural spaces for our personal recreation. Many of our members will go on to work in environmental fields, as teachers, land managers, or policy writers. Our members have expressed interest in receiving further training on Leave No Trace both for personal and professional use: we would like to emphasize how to live and follow the ethics, while also giving members guidelines for how to teach others about Leave No Trace and caring for their environment.&nbsp;</p>
