Does the Center have any recommendations for urban developments?

The Leave No Trace ethic is appropriate anywhere and everywhere - from deep Wilderness to your local city park. While the Leave No Trace program has its roots in backcountry and Wilderness, it has moved far beyond these areas and continues to be applied in new ways daily. The most applicable Leave No Trace information for urban environments is likely found in the Leave No Trace Frontcountry Program. Frontcountry is defined as outdoor areas that are easily accessed by car and mostly visited by day users. You can find more information on the Frontcountry program here. If you need information or guidance for activities or environments not addressed by the Frontcountry program, please contact the Center.
