As we mentioned last week Shenandoah National Park (SNP) has been selected as a Leave No Trace Spotlight location.

The park is also a Gold Star Park.

We spoke with Outdoor Recreation Planner Eric Frey about that in our latest news maker.

Experience Warren County Where History, Nature, and Family Come Together.

Eric briefs us on the the Leave No Trace Spotlight Location and the significance of the designation.

He also tells us what campers and hikers can do now that fires are not permitted in park except in rare locations.

Eric also tells us that it is all about preservation of the park and how distraction such as occurred at a national park recently can’t be tolerated at the SNP.
