The program covers the ethics behind Leave No Trace principles and why we all should try our best to be good stewards of our environment. Captain Blue's leadership and interpersonal skills were second to none. He is the consummate professional but keeps the atmosphere relaxed, fun and flexible. Thank you for exceeding my expectations.Dirk W.
