TAKE ACTION! Leave No Trace Workshop

March 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Hiking, biking, camping and other activities are great fun, but can wreak havoc on sensitive ecosystems. As part of Ijams Take Action!, we are partnering with River Sports Outfitters and Leave No Trace master educator, Lydia Williams, to bring you this hands-on, informative workshop on March 19 at 6pm. This lecture will focus on ways to enjoy the great outdoors responsibly while ensuring it is protected for future generations by covering the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace.

About Lydia Williams:

Lydia has worked seasonally with River Sports Outfitters since 2017. She is a Leave No Trace master educator and is passionate about the stewardship and protection of all things natural and wild. She is currently working towards a graduate certificate in Wilderness Management through the University of Montana. In her free time Lydia enjoys backpacking, visiting local breweries, and spending time with her husband and their two dogs.
