Leave No Trace


Take Care of Nature

Be a good human. Cherish, treasure, and take care of nature so it can be enjoyed by countless generations after we are gone. Buy and use refillable water bottles as opposed to bringing disposable plastic. Adventure with a trash bag in your pack and pack out any trash you come across. Please, please, please pick up after your dogs. Bagging their poop then leaving it along the trail is not cleaning up, it is littering. Support companies and politicians who value our environment and are fighting against climate change. Always follow the Leave No Trace Principles outlined below. These principles are created by Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.

The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace provide an easily understood framework of minimum impact practices for anyone visiting the outdoors. Although Leave No Trace has its roots in backcountry settings, the Principles have been adapted so that they can be applied anywhere — from remote wilderness areas, to local parks and even in your own backyard. They also apply to almost every recreational activity. Each Principle covers a specific topic and provides detailed information for minimizing impacts.
