CarolAnn Smith

Florida State Advocate

I became a Leave No Trace Trainer in 2007 at Philmont Scout Ranch. During training I learned that Scouts were on the “list” for exclusion in some National Parks due to their behaviors and practices. I work to ensure that Scout groups going out into the country are aware of Leave No Trace principles. In 2011 I became a Master Educator, and in 2017 I moved to Florida. My goal here is to connect with state and national parks, and local Native Sons and Daughters, to present awareness workshops, Trainer Courses to different groups. I will also continue working through Scouting to help them grow in their Outdoor Ethics programs. Contact me to get involved in sharing the message of Leave No Trace!
