Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers to Visit Simpson University

For Immediate Release


REDDING, Calif. - The community is invited to attend a presentation by Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers when they visit Simpson University on Wednesday, Feb. 10, to meet with Outdoor Leadership students.

The trainers will speak from 4 to 5 p.m. outside near the climbing wall on the south side of campus, near the softball field. An informal Q&A will take place from 5 to 6 p.m.

The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainer program consists of four teams of two educators each who 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 the public, youth, nonprofits, government agencies, and other groups about Leave No Trace skills and techniques designed to reduce the impact of outdoor activities.

The team will first meet with Simpson University Outdoor Leadership students to talk about outdoor living skills. Simpson is the only college on the West Coast 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.
