This brochure was developed as part of a national education program whose mission is to educate wildland user groups, federal agencies, and the public about minimum impact camping. The brochure lists principles for conservation of the environment in outdoor activities and discusses conservation techniques to minimize impact in backcountry and wilderness areas. The principles of the program concern: (1) backcountry trip planning and preparation; (2) concentrating impacts in high use areas; (3) spreading use and impact in pristine areas; (4) avoiding places where impact is just beginning; (5) picking up and packing out all litter; (6) properly disposing of waste; (7) leaving what you find; and (8) the proper use of campfires. Technical details are offered for making judgments about how to minimize impact and the rationale behind recommended practices. (LP)
