The Williamson County Conservation Foundation is offering another Leave No Trace for Williamson County Preserves training for people who want to access county preserve areas Aug. 20, according to a news release.

Leave No Trace is a program by the Center for Outdoor Ethics that trains participants to hike, bird watch and enjoy Williamson County preserves, the release said. Everyone older than 12 needs a pass; children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult with a pass, it said.

“Learning about LNT and LNT techniques helps people become more accomplished hikers, campers and outdoor recreationists,” said Gary Boyd, Williamson County Conservation Foundation’s environmental program coordinator, in the release.

The next class will be held Aug. 20 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Williamson County Georgetown Annex training room, 100 Wilco Way, Georgetown.

Williamson County⁠ has two preserve areas—Twin Springs Preserve in Georgetown and the Beck Preserve in Round Rock⁠—that will be open immediately to individuals who have received the training, the release said.

To reserve a spot in the class, send an email to wccf@wilco.org and include “LNT” in the subject line. Include your name and the number of persons accompanying you.
