Cape Horn Trail hosts international visitors
Tuesday, August 20, 2013
The Cape Horn Trail recently provided the setting for international interaction with individuals hailing from Georgia, a sovereign state located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe.
Four professionals, representing Georgia’s Agency of Protected Areas (Imereti Caves, Mtirala National Park and Tusheti Protected Areas) were accompanied by two interpreters.
At the trail, the group participated in maintenance and stewardship efforts in removing invasive species.
Teresa Robbins, Cape Horn Conservancy president, provided information, strategies and historical context in response to questions. She said several themes emerged though the conversations, including the need for successful collaboration of non-profits and government agencies, the ethic of volunteerism, and “how to” in attracting and engaging volunteers.
