Leave No Trace – Enjoying the Outdoors Responsibly
Join the Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers for an interactive presentation and discussion that will focus on the elements of the Leave No Trace minimum impact program.  This session will highlight the Leave No Trace outdoor skills and ethics program, which is applicable to all outdoor enthusiasts and all environments. This national program is administered by the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, whose mission is to teach people how to enjoy the outdoors responsibly.  In addition to learning the hows and whys behind the importance of practicing Leave No Trace, participants will be provided with information on how to easily and effectively integrate Leave No Trace into their daily lives and programs.  The Traveling Trainers are committed to teaching Leave No Trace education as they live on the road, sleep 250 nights a year in a tent, and offer this award winning program in communities from coast to coast.

Event Notes: The event was a great success! Participation was a little bit higher than expected, just over 20 participants. It was an even mix of Forest Service Staff and Wallowa Resources Staff. It was held outside in the city park. With beautiful weather, an area with shade and picnic tables the training was a big hit for all who attended. Amy gets the title of super event host, she is very passionate in what she does! Amy and Her husband a big backcountry skiers. She took us out to dinner at a local brewery and joyfully introduced us to many friends and community members who where also at the brewery. Where to camp? Camping is easy in Enterprise, OR: drive up Hurricane Creek Rd until you arrive at the end,dispersed camping is available. Right up the road from the campground is a bathroom facility at the trail head. You are only 10 minutes from town.
