Heritage Sites

Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado: Our national heritage sites are important and critical to protect because once they are gone, they are gone forever and cannot be replaced. On June 8, 1906 Theodore Roosevelt signed the Antiquities Act into law, which states that any person who should excavate, injure, or destroy any historic or prehistoric ruin or monument, or any object of antiquity will be fined, imprisoned, or both. However, even with the Antiquities Acts there are still people who circumvent the law and steal or destroy precious artifacts. Leave No Trace has specific guidelines that...

Canyoneering

The Mojave, Sonoran, Great Basin and Chihuahuan Deserts make up the vast Southwest in the United States. The desert is both a harsh and a fragile environment that requires visitors to travel and camp lightly on the land. Some of the Leave No Trace considerations for the desert can be different from other areas. Water is limited for both visitors and animals in the desert, which requires people to be more conscious of their campsite location. Another consideration is the fragile Cryptobiotic crust or living soil that covers large areas and is necessary for plants to grow from, but can be...
