Leave No Trace for City Parks

Guest - April 28, 2016

Bishop, CA: Frontcountry areas, like city parks and day use sites, are receiving more and more visitors every year and overall account for 85% of recreational use taking place today. So it’s more important than ever that we practice Leave No Trace on these easy to access public lands. Check out the tips listed below, and corresponding video, on how you can do your part and keep our favorite parks beautiful.

1.          Go before you go – use the facilities when available.  

2.          Stick to durable surfaces – established trails are the way to go!

3.          Keep wildlife wild – do not feed animals.

4.          Let the flowers grow – leave what you find!

5.          Protect the quality of visitors experiences – and be respectful.

6.          Enjoy your world and leave no trace!
