Summertime means summer camp, and what better type of summer camp than Cub Scout day camp? On Tuesday, the Leave No Trace e-tour Team rolled into Delaware and visited two different day camps from the Del-Mar-Va Council along with Travis McCormick, one of Frank's Scouting friends and an all-star professional Scouter.

Klamath Falls Recap

In A Sand County Almanac , Aldo Leopold wrote that “the land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants, and animals, or collectively: the land.” Maybe it’s time for us to flip that idea on its head, and think of bringing Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics from our backcountry into a community-based approach, a goal the Center has been focusing on over the past few years. By addressing environmental stewardship across different components of a community – land managers, schools, Scout troops, volunteer groups, and community leaders – we can...
