Bay Lakes Wisconsin Awareness

This Memorial weekend I partnered with local Boy Scouts of America Master Educators Norm Peterson and Greg Fox for four awareness workshops with local cub scouts at the Cabelas in Richfield, WI. We did outreach to 75 scouts and introduced them to the concepts and ideas of Leave No Trace. These Cub Scout groups are apart of the Bay Lakes Council, and after school gets out they will be gearing up for summer camp at the scout reservation. The cub scouts were introduced to two principles "Choose the Right Path", and "Trash your Trash". We played a couple of PEAK activities, Step on It & How Long Does it Last? Norm & Greg from the BSA also ran a trail simulation activity, getting the scouts to think about the impacts we have on and off the trail. In the camping department we had a booth set up, with lots of educational materials, for store goers, and had our Wisconsin State Advocate Carrie Wilson volunteer at the booth. She  talked with Cabelas  customers about the organization and gave out educational materials. 

Thanks to all the volunteers and Stephanie Crangle at  Cabelas in Richfield, WI for having the Leave No Trace E-Tour, and helping me do outreach this weekend. Happy Trails..... Alexis
