The Leave No Trace e-tour Team will be joining the scouts and leaders in the Evangeline Area Council for two days of Leave No Trace training over the weekend of July 7-8th.



Pretty awesome event right here! They focused the whole weekend around Leave No Trace, an exhausting event but maximized our time. Hit several scout troops and cub scout packs across their district at one of the council's camps. Did a 2-hour morning session with adults, then in the afternoon a 2 hour session with Boy Scouts, 1 hour session with Cub Scouts, and 1 hour session with Webelos. Also helped out with a tree-planting service project that afternoon. Helped out with the campfire that evening, led a couple of camp songs. Did another 2 hour session with adults on Sunday morning. Activities by session:

Adult sessions (2 sessions, 2 hours each) -- Minimum Impact Match, How Long Does It Last, Step on It Demo, Poop Talk, Wag Bag demo, Outdoor Ethics white board, Invasive Species Rope demo, Sattellite Trails demo, discussion of how to present Leave What You Find

Boy Scout session (2 hours) -- Minimum Impact Match, How Long Does It Last, Step On It, Cathole Olympics, Wag Bag demo

Cub Scout session (1 hour) -- How Long Does It Last, Okay/No Way, Cathole Olympics

Webelos (1 hour) -- How Long Does It Last, Step On It, Cathole Olympics

Definitely worth going back to this group, they offered free camping and FED US WELL. Got multiple types of jumbalaya, a lot of cobbler, blackened chicken pasta. Want us back in a colder month so they can cook us some gumbo. Very dedicated group of adult volunteers and well-behaved, interested scouts.
