John Winter

Iowa State Advocate

I am a native Iowan. I became a Leave No Trace Master Educator in 1998, and am committed to spread the good word about Leave No Trace through awareness events, trainer courses, and Master Educator courses. As a primary food producing state, the Iowa landscape has been heavily developed for commercial agriculture. This makes our natural areas very precious and worthy of our best efforts to protect them. I hope to be able to bring people together to help raise awareness of our beautiful natural areas and to learn together what we can do to preserve them for future generations of Iowans.

Let’s protect and enjoy our natural world together
