No Trace of NOAC

Once every two to three years, over 8,000 members of the Boy Scouts of America descend on a college campus for the week-long National Order of the Arrow Conference, or NOAC . These Scouts are all members of the Order of the Arrow, Scouting's national honor society. While at NOAC, they participate in training, competitions, service projects, and fellowship events.

Outdoor Nation Austin

At the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics we aim to create environmental stewards through a three-part approach: educate, connect, protect.

Up a Creek in Austin

Honorary Cajuns

Down on the Bayou in the July heat, the Leave No Trace e-tour team joined up with Boy Scouts from across Southern Louisiana for a weekend full of Leave No Trace education, volunteer conservation work, campsongs, and tasty Cajun eating.
