We are pleased to be a partner with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. Leave No Trace is not about rules and regulations. It's an education program that teaches outdoor enthusiasts how to protect the places they love. The principles of Leave No Trace originated from a need to protect backcountry and wilderness areas from human-caused recreational impacts. However, the application of Leave No Trace extends far beyond these areas. As more and more people are recreating in "front country" settings, knowledge of how to apply Leave No Trace becomes increasingly important.
The following guidelines are a focused set of recommendations based on the original Leave No Trace principles. Please practice these ethics when recreating in our great outdoors.
