The LNT Song with Pickles
Pickles and Brokeback came up with this anthem YEARS ago to help campers remember the essentials of being a good camper and making sure that, wherever we go, we LEAVE NO TRACE!
PS – Can you recognize the tune they borrowed??
Earth Art with Katelyn
Katelyn is our arts & crafts expert! She’s showing off her Earth portrait making skills today – follow along with her for some great Earth Day tips too!
The 7 LNT Principles
We at Calleva use the Leave No Trace (LNT) Principles to be sure that we are leaving the smallest impact possible on all of the parks that we visit! There are 7 LNT principles & they can be hard to remember – but we’ve learned some hand signs that make it easy thanks to Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics!
Earth Cookies with Josie & Katie
If you’re looking for a sweet treat to get you in the Earth Day spirit, these girls know just the trick! These cookies are spirited and will remind you of how awesome our planet is with every bite.
Planting to Protect the Potomac
Farmer Max teaches us a little more about Riparian Zones, cattail plants, and how you can be a responsible gardener and ensure that farms and nature can live in harmony!
Make sure you get outside and appreciate nature today – pick up some trash, practice LNT, and share your love for our planet! Show us some love with #callevahomecamp and keep the energy going!
