Hi-Cone Beach Cleanup

Thousands of pieces of trash were picked up this past weekend in Chicago, Illinois at the Kathy Osterman/Hollywood Beach along the shore of Lake Michigan. Thanks to Hi-Cone , this beach clean up is possible. Hi-Cone has been organizing this clean up with the Alliance for the Great Lakes and The Ocean Conservancy since 1990. With the support from all of Hi-cones partners they are able to clean up the beach in celebration of International Coastal Cleanup Day, which is sponsored globally by the Ocean Conservancy. An inspiring fact about the ICCD is in 2013, 650,000 volunteers worldwide picked up...

Connecting kids to the outdoors

Today we taught Leave No Trace to students from James Workman Middle School in Cathedral City, California. We attended a field trip with them to Mount San Jacinto State Park outside of Palm Springs, California. We took a tram that lifted us from 2,000 feet elevation up to 8,000 feet elevation on top of the mountains surrounding the city. The intention of today’s field trip was to teach Leave No Trace and get the kids outside. As soon as we left the tram station we arrived to find that above the city was a cool, tree covered, and a beautiful mountain oasis. It was a nice change from the arid...

What I Learned Backpacking in Rocky Mountain National Park. Part 1

Rocky Mountain National Park in northern Colorado is a truly wild and unforgiving landscape riddled with features carved by the powerful hands of time. “The Park” holds a power and meaning different for all who spend time there. The 416 square miles of untrammeled and rugged terrain provide stories people carry proudly with them for the rest of their days. Stories of triumph, solitude, defeat, joy, danger, adventure, and simplicity. This is my story of a week spent in The Park, what I learned about Leave No Trace and other lessons on a life well lived. This story begins with the year-long...
