There’s no substitute for nature.

From neighborhood walks to backcountry treks, we’re drawn to it. It sustains us. Connects us. Inspires us. There is a place for everyone in the outdoors.

But it all has an impact.

More use, over use, trash, endangered wildlife. And around it all: climate change. The nature we love is at risk.

It’s time to reimagine how we #outdoors.

Where getting out is about more than views. And taking actions that protect the nature we can’t live without happens everywhere, every time.

We’re Leave No Trace. We empower people to be
the solution to conservation.

We pioneer science and insights, build sustaining partnerships and activate our proven learning system. Because it takes more than checklists to protect our lands. It takes all of us.

When you Leave No Trace, you show you care.

And that makes the difference. Because when we all do our part, we keep forests healthy, protect our parks, keep wildlife strong and ensure everyone is welcomed to enjoy these remarkable places together.

No matter where or why you get outside, it’s yours to protect.

It’s Your Nature.
