Leave No Trace Spotlight: Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area
Join Leave No Trace in Tequesta, FL – February 15-17, 2024
We hand-select nominated outdoor spaces that need our collective care and attention. By designating them as Spotlights, we’re rallying the local community to step up, join forces with Leave No Trace, and make a meaningful impact that can revitalize and protect these special places where we recreate, enjoy one another’s company, and elevate our health physically, mentally and emotionally.
Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area has been selected as a 2024 Leave No Trace Spotlight. The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Team will be at Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area February 15-17, collaborating with hosts and partners on a variety of programs including stewardship projects, workshops, and community outreach.
