Leave No Trace e-Newsletter
March 2010

This is your chance, if you have a kid in your life.


The other day, a couple of us were in deep discussions about kids; specifically, how to engage them in the Bigfoot Challenge. This year, we're asking you to commit simple acts of Leave No Trace stewardship by taking a single Bigfoot Challenge, or up to one every month. Bigfoot is also an ideal opportunity to introduce basic Leave No Trace concepts to kids and beginning in April, you will see a special challenge for kids every month.


You can learn more about Bigfoot in this issue as well as nominate a Hotspot for Leave No Trace in your neck of the woods by visiting our website or contacting the Center. We're also introducing new grant deadlines, resources to enhance Leave No Trace in your community and more.


Take the Challenge.
