This weekend the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics and Yakima are teaming up to give away a SkyBox Pro 16 for National Get Outdoors Day. Click here for more information on our Instagram Contest! This event, held at locations across the country, encourages healthy, active outdoor fun! 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. Submit a photo of how you are celebrating National Get Outdoors Day by tagging @YakimaRacks and @LeaveNoTraceCenter on Instagram and you will be entered to win a SkyBox Pro 16!
As you explore the outdoors, you will undoubtedly find many natural items that would look nifty on your shelf at home. Allow others a sense of discovery by leaving plants, rocks, and other natural object of interest as you find them. Taking a picture will create a more long lasting memory anyways. In National Parks, and other areas, it is illegal to take any items home with you, so please Leave What You Find!
The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers educate children and adults across the country on the importance of being responsible in the outdoors and to be active stewards of lands shared by the public. Take a look at the Traveling Trainers in action at a school in Tarpon Springs, FL.
