Coleman Country

Our last program this season was located at the Coleman Factory Outlet and Museum in Wichita, KS. This is one of the most unique Coleman stores, featuring some of the first made coolers, lanterns, and even coffee makers by Coleman. While at the store we had two awareness workshops, teaching local scouts, parents, and scout leaders about Leave No Trace and how to minimize the impacts while on outings. Some of the participants were avid fisherman, so we discussed making good decisions while fishing and how to properly dispose of fish entrails. We also talked about Trash your Trash, and the affects our trash has on the environment and on wildlife. After we wrapped up our workshops, we headed out of Kansas to Colorado to end the season.
Thank You Coleman for having us, we appreciate all your great staff at the store and your support for Leave No Trace.

Happy Trails from the e-tour,

Alexis & Topher
