Hot Spots

LNT_ParkPoster_Web_0.jpg

Hot Spots is a critical initiative for areas suffering from the severe impacts of outdoor activities. Though damaged, these areas can thrive again with Leave No Trace solutions. 

Each chosen location receives a unique, site-specific blend of training, expert consulting, education programs for youth and adults, service projects, monitoring programs and more. The result is sustainable outdoor areas that are on the road to a healthy recovery with new, custom Leave No Trace educational programs and tools in place.
