REDDING, Calif. - Two Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers visited Simpson University on Feb. 10 to talk to students and community members about ways to protect the environment during outdoor activities.

The event was organized by the Simpson University Outdoor Leadership program. The Shasta Rock Club donated free day passes to attendees.

Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers drive cross-country in Subaru Hybrids, teaching people how to protect and enjoy the outdoors responsibly. The trainers live out of their cars, camping more than 250 nights a year, and offering programs to groups about Leave No Trace skills and techniques designed to reduce the impact of outdoor activities.

Simpson University is the only West Coast college in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities to offer an Outdoor Leadership major and minor. In its ninth year, the program has graduated men and women who are working as leaders at adventure companies, camps, recreation centers, and more. Learn more at
