American families will have a chance to experience traditional and non-traditional types of outdoor activities. In addition to a fun-filled day of activities, people and kids will learn about the outdoors through a variety of learning stations. The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers will be located in the Junior Ranger Camp area in Denver, CO; Greentown, PA; and Portland, OR.
