Forest Service (USDA), Washington, DC.; Tread Lightly, Inc., Ogden, UT.
This document consists of two brochures that provide land ethics guidelines for outdoor recreationists. The brochures provide techniques that visitors can use to help reduce evidence of their presence in the back country, designated "Wilderness" areas. The first brochure, titled "Leave no Trace! Land Ethics," provides guidelines for planning back country trips, traveling in back country, camping, use of fires, sanitation, use of pack animals, historical and archeological sites, and back country courtesy. The second brochure, titled "Tread Lightly! on Public and Private Land," provides guidelines for the use of dirt bikes, all terrain vehicles, horses and other means of traveling through back country. This brochure also includes a guide to national forests and public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management. (LP)
