John Prelip

California State Advocate

I live in El Dorado County. I am a Master Educator, trail guide with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, docent and board member for the Eldorado National Forest Interpretive Association, volunteer for the Golden Empire Council, BSA and an Exploring Advisor for El Dorado County Sheriff Explorers.

California is home to many highly impacted trails. Exploring the outdoors has sky rocketed and along with that comes a greater need for awareness of Leave No Trace principles. My goal is to develop partnerships and recruit new trainers to increase the spread of Leave No Trace education and protect California’s outdoor places.

Please contact me if you are interested in supporting, volunteering or becoming more involved with the Leave No Trace program.
