Leave No Trace Weekend At Hoosier National Forest

(UNDATED) – The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers and U.S. Forest Service staff will be providing great information to visitors on the Leave No Trace Seven Principles as they spend time in the Charles C. Deam Wilderness and Hardin Ridge Recreation Area over the Memorial Day weekend.

Leave No Trace Seven Principles stress enjoying outdoor recreation while minimizing impacts on the environment and other visitors. If you are coming out to enjoy your public lands by hiking, camping or riding horses, look for these folks between May 24th and 27th at the following locations.
They are happy to answer any questions and have some great give away items based on the principles.
