“Leave No Trace offers a way for the general public to become the conscientious public and in doing so influences the character of both the land and people.” Sarah Knapp, Founder of Outdoorfest
Leave No Trace is on a mission to utilize the power of science, education and stewardship of people and partners, to ensure a sustainable future for the outdoors and the planet.
Incorporated in 1994, the Leave No Trace organization was founded to promote sustainable wilderness and backcountry travel but has grown over the last 3 decades to advocate for care, responsibility and stewardship – no matter where or why people get outside.
