The Leave No Trace Story

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics provides proven, research-based solutions for the protection of the natural world.

The organization accomplishes its mission by providing innovative education, skills and research to help people care for the outdoors. By working with the public and those managing public lands, the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics focuses on educating people—instead of costly restoration programs or access restrictions—as the most effective and least resource-intensive solution to land protection.
