Leave No Trace Workshop at Hillsborough River State Park

This month I was invited to teach the fireside chat at Hillsborough River State Park by one of the rangers I had met out there recently. For me this was quite an honor as this state park is one of my favorites and holds a special place in my heart.

It was a rainy Saturday evening but we met high and dry in the Cedar Landing Pavillion right alongside the river. Having the screened pavillion was a plus as the mosquitos were pretty excited for the last few days of rain we had been getting and we anxious to dine on anyone that would allow :-).

We had about 30 campers attend the workshop and we went over all of the information and principles offered by “Leave No Trace” Everyone walked away with a new way of looking at the world just outside their tent or RV. The park staff was also on hand to answer specific questions directly related to the park itself adn I could not have done the class without the help of one of my dear friends Deborah Highsmith who took photos and handeled the light for me.

If you are interested in bringing a Leave No Trace workshop to your facility please call Jeanene directly at 813-789-0904

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
