The e-tour team has been spending some time in the fine state of Maryland. Two of those events were in conjunction with Maryland State Parks. At Rocky Gap State Park we joined in the training of over sixty exuberant interpretive staff members, who will be entering their busy summer season with an aim to incorporate the principles of Leave No Trace into their already stellar park programming. A very special thanks to Matthew Ritter, Maryland Park Service Chief of Interpretation for keeping the camping close by, and far from a rumbling tummy.

We enjoyed a perfect summer day on the shores of the Chesapeake with thousands of kids gearing up for their time away from the classroom, and out of doors at the Maryland Green School Youth Summit. We taught a lot of aspiring outdoor enthusiasts how to Know Before You Go, to keep them having fun on all of their adventures. Mark had been looking forward to this event ever since he found out there was going to be a kite rally!
