Northwest Outward Bound School Backcountry Code.
Wade, Ian R.
Because use of the backcountry makes a physical impact on the land and an impact on the experience on other backcountry visitors, these notes summarize some of the Northwest Outward Bound School's current operating practices which seek to minimize both types of impact. The first section outlines expected student behavior in encounters with other backcountry users. The next section emphasizes minimizing the physical impact on the backcountry by users. The section covers travel procedures, campsite selection, fire regulations, proper latrine construction and care, procedures for washing and for disposal of soapy water, and trash disposal. (CM)
