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.

When planning for a trip, it is important to take the time to learn about the area you are going, so that you can minimize potential impacts to the land. Here are a few questions to consider:
- Do the contents of your pack properly prepare you for this trip?
- Do the contents of your pack ensure your safety?
- Do the contents of your pack ensure you will Leave No Trace that you will not damage natural or cultural resources
- Do the contents of your pack ensure your trip will meet your goal for example, wildlife viewing or fish safely and enjoyably?
Consider the length of your trip, the location, the weather, and the activity you will be doing so that you can properly Plan Ahead and Prepare.
