The History Behind the Buffalo Tro

At Touch of Nature, the Buffalo Tro stands as a cherished tradition, brought to the organization by LB Sharp, a pioneer in outdoor education. This heartfelt tradition involves the cooking of steaks over hot coals and storytelling around a fire, not only as a tribute to Sharp's legacy but also as a powerful catalyst for fostering a deep sense of community and identity among participants. The Buffalo Tro, with its unique blend of culinary and storytelling elements, becomes a sacred ritual that transcends the immediate experience, connecting present participants to the profound heritage of outdoor education at Touch of Nature.
