Leave No Trace is for all people and our organization recognizes that every person’s relationship with the outdoors and the natural world is unique and personal. We believe in and are committed to working towards a world in which everyone is safe and welcome in the outdoors, in which all are equally included, represented, and have equal access to cultivate the personal connection that can inspire people to enjoy the outdoors responsibly.
Leave No Trace staff and Board have developed in-depth goals to move the organization and the Leave No Trace Community forward in our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. In the spirit of this being a movement, not a moment, we acknowledge that these programs, initiatives, and goals will continue to evolve and grow over time.
Working to make outdoor spaces inclusive and accessible is fundamental to the core mission of Leave No Trace – to ensure a sustainable future for the outdoors and the planet for all people, present and future.
Leave No Trace acknowledges that the lands we enjoy through our outdoor activities are the traditional and ancestral lands of Indigenous People and First Nations. Our intention in this acknowledgment is to honor cultural ways of stewarding the land, practiced from ancient times to this day. Learn more about the ancestral caretakers and lands you recreate on.
