Leave No Trace e-Newsletter
September 2009
logoIt's been a big year for Leave No Trace... and with less than 4 months to go, we're full steam ahead to make this our most successful year of programs, outreach and education yet. 

We cannot forget, however, that we are enjoying the success and celebrating the community we have today, because of YOU - the supporters who have been with us through the years.  Join us in celebrating yet another year with the Leave No Trace Annual Report 2009 - released for the first time via our web page, to provide ease of access and less resource waste.

While you're in the celebrating mode, let this newsletter inspire you to do just that: Celebrate the new Fall season; Celebrate education, and Celebrate those who dedicate their lives to making the world a better place.  After all, who isn't motivated by a little success story?

CRAZY Creek
To recline or not to recline... That is the question.  In light of Crazy Creek owner, Rob Hart's, tragic death earlier this year, the company is doing anything but reclining.  Just look at how Crazy Creek is honoring Rob's longtime commitment to Leave No Trace and conservation!
