Leave No Trace

The Leave No Trace educational program promotes skills and ethics to support the sustainable use of wild lands and natural areas. The concept originated in the U.S. as a way to help recreationists minimize their impact while enjoying the outdoors.

Today the Leave No Trace program is part of the Scouting program. Just as important as enjoying the outdoors is respecting the natural resources and preserving them for the future.

This activity designed for experienced Scouts and leaders, teaches the seven principles of Leave No Trace. Advanced techniques and simple rules to live by when enjoying the great outdoors are all part of this program. Schedule a time with the Outdoor Skills (Scoutcraft) staff for your orientation.

The orientation can be for leaders, junior leaders or whole troops. This is a good way to start the trek to earning the LNT award. (Check it out at Leave No Trace Awareness Award).
