Charles Gwinn

New Mexico State Advocate

Hello and greetings from the great state of New Mexico!  I’m Charles Gwinn, and am proud to serve as Leave No Trace State Advocate.  I participated in my first trainer course in 2006, and received my ME in 2009.  I live in Albuquerque, and work for the University of New Mexico.  I have been an outdoor educator since the early 2000’s and am passionate about being the best land steward I can be.  My goals are to create a lasting presence for Leave No Trace in the state by connecting with like-minded non-profits and community groups, create relationships with youth programs and schools, and to develop outdoor leadership and experiential education programming anywhere I can.  Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you bring Leave No Trace to the Land of Enchantment!

Let’s protect and enjoy our natural world together
