Leave No Trace

My dear friend, Michelle Seubert, who is the park manager at Barr Lake State Park, spent the day in Denver with the Governor and other dignitaries discussing keeping Colorado’s parks and open spaces safe for everyone to enjoy. This video is something they put together to help educate the public about the Leave No Trace 7 Principles.

If you want more information about Leave No Trace, you can find it all on the Friends of Barr Lake web site. You can also take a survey about the Leave No Trace Principles.

Because nature photography is a passion of mine, I taught my son as he was growing up to respect nature. He became a Ranger with the National Park service, and he works now with the Parks and Open Space Department of Jefferson County in Colorado. We have made sure that my grandson has grown up with a love and respect for nature, as well. He regularly takes garbage bags and gloves when we go somewhere so he can pick up trash that others leave behind. He worries so much about the animals that can be hurt, or even killed, by the careless actions of others.

Now, I am working with the local parks authority here in Texas to put together a group to clean up the Miller Springs Park along the Leon River. It’s not easy to motivate people in this current climate, but I’m not giving up!
