Leave No Trace! An Outdoor Ethic: A Program To Teach Skills for Protecting the Wilderness Environment.
Forest Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
This document consists of two brochures that were developed as part of a land ethics training program for outdoor recreationists. The brochures provide information about techniques that outdoor practitioners can use to help minimize disturbance to backcountry and wilderness areas. Heavy use of popular camping areas can create problems such as overcrowding, soil erosion, campfire scars, pollution of lakes and streams, disturbing noise, and scattered litter. The brochures provide guidelines for planning wilderness trips, traveling in backcountry or wilderness areas, camping, use of fires, appropriate sanitation methods, use of pack animals visiting historical and archeological sites, and backcountry courtesy. Also included is a basic test of outdoor ethics and skills. (LP)
