A graduate of Outdoor Education in GMIT, Patrick completed his Leave No Trace trainer course in August 2018. Having grown up in Donegal, Patrick has always been surrounded by incredible environments and had a upbringing of days in the hills, bogs and beaches. With increasing numbers of people heading into these fragile environments, both positive and negative impacts can be highlighted. Patrick wants to focus on the positives and network with other trainers to promote leave no trace awareness to people of all ages to become custodians of our natural environments.
