Leave No Trace Spotlight: Beaver Lake

Join Leave No Trace in Beaver Lake, AR – April 12-14, 2024

We hand-select nominated outdoor spaces that need our collective care and attention. By designating them as Spotlights, we’re rallying the local community to step up, join forces with Leave No Trace, and make a meaningful impact that can revitalize and protect these special places where we recreate, enjoy one another’s company, and elevate our health physically, mentally and emotionally. 

Beaver Lake has been selected as a 2024 Leave No Trace Spotlight. The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Team will be at Beaver Lake April 12-14, collaborating with hosts and partners on a variety of programs including stewardship projects, workshops, and community outreach.
