Brice - March 18, 2021

Spring is on the way and with it more outdoor adventures. After a winter of hibernation, many of us are getting back on the trails and into natural spaces. Now is a great time for a reminder on how to protect those places while we are there. Here are a few ways to refresh your Leave No Trace skills this spring. 

1. How to Put Out a Campfire

A safe and responsible campfire can keep us warm during spring trips, but we need to know how to put that fire completely out. 

2. How to Share the Trail

We aren’t the only ones getting outside. Our trails are for everyone, and there are some ways to minimize our impacts while sharing these spaces.

3. How to Go to the Bathroom Outside

Human waste can be hugely impactful to natural spaces and those who visit after us. With some restrooms still closed, now is the time to learn about going to the restroom outside.

Planning is a crucial part of any outdoor trip, and things are always changing. Even if it is a place you have visited before, it is still important to plan ahead and prepare.
