For Responsible Scouting Outings -- Get Trained in Leave No Trace!
Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly!
Scouting has adopted the Principles of Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly! to build upon the ethic in the Outdoor Code and to provide more specific outdoor use guidelines and skills.
Leave No Trace IS NOT a set of rules or regulations.
Leave No Trace IS
an ethic, an attitude and a set of flexible guiding principles
respecting and caring for wildlands and wildlife
protecting our natural resources and protecting our future recreation opportunities
being considerate of other outdoor users
being prepared and learning minimum impact camping skills
making good decisions whenever we are enjoying outdoor activities
Every outing should be planned and conducted with Leave No Trace in mind!
Leave No Trace has been a program emphasis of the Longs Peak Council since 1994. Along with National BSA, the Longs Peak Council is one of the few Boy Scout councils in the nation who are official Partners of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.
