21/1/19 Leave No Trace

 

Leave No Trace is a set of outdoor ethics promoting conservation in the outdoors. It consists of 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.

Since 1994, Leave No Trace Center For Outdoor Ethics, a non-profit organization also known as Leave No Trace (www.lnt.org), exists to educate people about their recreational impact on nature as well as the principles of Leave No Trace to prevent and minimize such impacts.
