'Tis the season for celebration and reflection. As I think about the
past twelve months, I can say with certainty that, in 2009, the Center for
Outdoor Ethics worked hard to leave no
trace in a "big" way.
The Bigfoot Challenge
brought in new supporters and members, and set the stage for local volunteer
opportunities. Enjoy his success (and yours!) with the limited edition Bigfoot pint glass... details are below. If you missed out on the action in 2009, have
no fear: the furry guy is back in 2010!
In addition, Bigfoot will be joined by another
volunteer-based program called Leave No
Trace Hot Spots. Stay tuned for details about this exciting new program in January's eNews and
how you can get involved.
Leave No Trace Education is now brought to you in a
multitude of platforms. Attend a workshop. Read a blog. Watch an instructional video. Take an online course. Our goal is to continue to adapt the ways that we offer
programming, and increase both the number and diversity of Leave No Trace
Before we close out the year, we like to thank a
representative group of outstanding individuals and organizations. Their time and dedication to the Leave
No Trace program has been an integral part of its success, and the Center is
proud to honor this group as 2009 Leave No Trace Award Recipients.
Finally, during this season of giving, consider the gift of membership or partnership. Your support directly benefits local volunteer
opportunities and ensures the sustainability of Leave No Trace environmental
Thanks for a great year. See you in 2010!

Don't miss Bigfoot before he disappears for his holiday vacation! He's here to invite you to share in one last push to support Leave No Trace during the holiday season... and willingly gave us his mug shot to put on a commemorative glass - for you and your friends!
