'Leave No Trace' Workshop Aug. 2 at Bluffton
July 23, 2008 - You can find out what it means to "walk gently upon the Earth" by joining Bill Houk for a "Leave No Trace" workshop at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at the Rustic Oak Shelter.
Houk is a Master Educator who volunteers to lead workshops about how to leave no trace, throughout Indiana and the Midwest. He will be using games, demonstrations, and hands-on activities to help participants learn seven important "Leave No Trace" principles.
The program is free and designed to assist outdoor enthusiasts and groups with making decisions about how to reduce their impacts when they are in the out-of-doors.
According to the park's interpretive naturalist Kate Curless, this is an educational and ethical program, and not a set of rules and regulations.
"It's a tremendous workshop for everyone interested in learning how to minimize their impact on Indiana's State Parks and Reservoirs," Curless said.
For more information about the Leave No Trace program, go to www.LNT.org.
The event is free after paying the standard gate fee of $5 for in-state and $7 for out-of-state vehicles.
Limited parking is available at the Rustic Oak Shelter. Additional parking is available nearby.
For more information call (260) 824-0926 or e-mail OuabacheInterp@dnr.IN.gov.
Ouabache State Park is located at 4930 East State Road 201, Bluffton.
