     Home | Organization | Leave No Trace





Leave No Trace is both a set of principles, and an organization that promotes those principles. The principles are designed to assist outdoor enthusiasts with their decisions about how to reduce their impacts when they hike, camp, picnic, snowshoe, run, bike, hunt, paddle, ride horses, fish, ski or climb. The organization strives to educate all those who enjoy the outdoors about the nature of their recreational impacts as well as techniques to prevent and minimize such impacts. Leave No Trace is an educational and ethical program, not a set of rules and regulations. Leave No Trace information helps public land visitors understand and practice minimum impact skills and ethics.

The Leave No Trace message is framed under seven principles:

#Plan Ahead and Prepare

#Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces

#Dispose of Waste Properly

#Leave What You Find

#Minimize Campfire Impacts

#Respect Wildlife

#Be Considerate of Other Visitors
