Leave No Trace
The member and partner-driven Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics teaches people of all ages how to enjoy the outdoors responsibly, and is the most widely accepted outdoor ethics program used on public lands. Through targeted education and outreach, the Center ensures the long-term health of our natural world. In its simplest form, Leave No Trace is about making good decisions to protect the world around you — the world we all enjoy.
The Leave No Trace Center For outdoor Ethics was incorporated as a 501-c-3, nonprofit organization in 1994, though the Leave No Trace concept is over 40 years old. The Center uses research and science to build sound, pragmatic approaches to resource protection for varying types of outdoor recreation and ecosystems. Seven basic principles are used as the foundation of its education. The organization teaches skills and ethics to help people minimize their impacts on our lands.
Outdoor industry partners play a key role in spreading Leave No Trace programs to all people who enjoy the outdoors. With the help of partners like Osprey, the Leave No Trace Center For Outdoor Ethics trains hundreds of thousands of adults and children every year in Leave No Trace in national, state and city parks, at schools and universities, with youth organizations and through outdoor programs.
