Yampa River State Park Hosts Program on "Leave No Trace"
HAYDEN, Colo. - Yampa River State Park will be hosting a program for all ages to educate the public on "outdoor ethics." The program is called "Leave No Trace" and will be presented by the Colorado Tour Team, which advocates preservation and protection of our outdoor recreational areas. The program will be held for Saturday, Sept. 10, at 7 p.m.
The team will teach visitors on how to protect our outdoor recreational areas, how to "Leave no Trace," by:
· Planning ahead and preparing
· Traveling and camping on durable surfaces
· Disposing of waste properly and leaving what we find
· Minimizing campfire impacts
· Respecting wildlife and being considerate of other visitors
Please join us as we learn to leave no trace in the forests and parks of our beautiful state. There may be a surprise sighting of "Big Foot," so bring the family to Yampa River State Park to enjoy a night of information and entertainment.
These events are free, but a valid parks pass is required on all vehicles that enter the park.
