Christodora-Manice Education Center

Florida, MA. The e-tour provided a Leave No Trace Awareness Workshop to the seasonal staff of the Manice Education Center in the Berkshire mountains of Northwest Massachusetts. They are preparing for their first round of campers to arrive to participate in environmental education and leadership development courses including multi-day excursions into wilderness settings. Most of the campers they see have never left New York City before and no one is denied participation due to financial need. The staff will be teaching their campers how to Leave No Trace on their trips backpacking and canoeing while encouraging a spirit of cooperation and self-confidence guiding participants toward a broader understanding of themselves, their environment and their community.

Thanks for such a great visit!
