Hot Spots

Hot Spots identify areas suffering from the severe recreational impacts that can thrive again with Leave No Trace solutions. Each location receives a unique, site specific blend of programs aimed at healthy and sustainable recovery.

Since 2012, we have carried out just under 100 Hot Spots in 35 states–with 14 more coming in 2020. Through these Hot Spots, we have helped national parks, national forests, BLM land, state parks, city parks, and much more get back on track in addressing impacts from ever-growing visitation to our parks and protected areas.
