Description: 

The Delta National Forest is experiencing severe impacts from outdoor activities and was selected as a 2018 Leave No Trace Hot Spot. Located in Sharkey County Mississippi, Delta National Forest is home to a large bottomland hardwood forest, seasonally flooded timber, and small swamps that drain into the Big and Little Sunflower Rivers.

This forest is a popular destination for camping, hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing but is suffering from pollution and damage to riparian areas and erosion and widening of motorized trails. The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers will be working with US Forest Service staff and local partners to execute a week of targeted training, education programs, and service projects to help this threatened area on its road to recovery.
