| What Do YOU Think?|
It could be, that when you hear the words "strategic
planning" it inspires a yawn. However, we just began laying out Leave No
Trace's future work based on the direct conversations and interviews of
hundreds of you. Talking with you-Leave No Trace members, partners and
stakeholders-has been helpful, insightful and genuinely exciting.
If you have shared your perspectives with one of us, thank
you. If not, we would like to hear from you now. In the next month, we are
particularly interested in hearing from you about following:
Jot down your thoughts on the questions above and send them
to me at susy@LNT.org. Lend your voice to shaping Leave No Trace's future.
- What are the critical issues
related to Leave No Trace in your community, and what opportunities do you see
for Leave No Trace to help you address them?
- What Leave No Trace programs
have the most impact?
- As you look to the future,
what additional outdoor recreation initiatives could the Leave No Trace Center
for Outdoor Ethics engage in?
We look forward to hearing from you.
