Wilderness and the Leave No Trace Seven Principles

 

Wilderness is an American ideal of areas in the landscape left untrammeled by humankind. The Wilderness Act of 1964 indoctrinated this ideal by designating areas of wilderness on public lands and creating the National Park Service. The National Park Service works to support the mandates of the wilderness act.

 

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics provides research and education for the outdoor community. The Leave No Trace Seven Principles are designed to help the public enjoy the Wilderness responsibly. Do your part to support wilderness on public lands by following these principles in the outdoors:

 

Plan Ahead and Prepare

Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces

Dispose of Waster Properly

Leave What you Find

Minimize Campfire Impacts

Respect Wildlife

Be Considerate of Other Visitors
