The Center’s state and regional tourism partnerships work to provide a consistent message of sustainable tourism to visitors in states and communities across the country. Tourism provides an excellent framework to teach and share Leave No Trace and to expand its sphere of influence. Partnerships state and regional tourism offices provide unique opportunities to expose outdoor visitors to Leave No Trace first while planning their visits and then at specific touch-points all throughout their trip.


Arizona Office of Tourism

“It is a natural fit for the Arizona Office of Tourism to partner with a premier responsible tourism organization like Leave No Trace,” said Debbie Johnson, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism. “We’re both dedicated to ensuring the health and longevity of all the destinations and natural features that make our state spectacular and attract millions of visitors each year.”

Colorado Tourism Office

In 2017, Colorado’s Tourism Office (CTO) became the first state in the nation to partner with Leave No Trace. The Center and CTO joined forces to create Colorado-tailored Leave No Trace educational messages and an Are You Colorado Ready campaign to educate both in state and out of state travelers about protecting Colorado’s precious natural resources. Through this partnership CTO and the Center have built a coalition of businesses and organizations that are working together to promote stewardship of Colorado’s outdoors.

Let’s protect and enjoy our natural world together
