Leave No Trace Training

Our ACLCs took a little break from their energy conservation work, to take a trip to Boulder to learn more about Leave No Trace in preparation for their summer crews!

Tony, an ACLC commented on some of the pictures taken that day!

LNT training was a great experience for all ACLC's to learn how to live in harmony with mother nature, and the view didn't hurt either...

Nikki is learning how to dig a cat hole for when nature calls in the back country.

Wildlife was prevalent! We spotted some deer catching some shade by the trail.

Leave No Trace is a program meant to teach individuals about what their impact on the outdoors can be when they hike, camp, picnic, backpack, hunt, fish and do many other outdoor activities. This training, more importantly, helps to understand how to continue to do those great activites, while reducing their impact on the environment!

The seven principles of Leave No Trace are:
1. Plan ahead and prepare
2. Travel and camp on durable surfaces
3. Respect wildlife
4. Be considerate of other visitors
5. Minimize campfire impacts
6. Leave what you find
7. Dispose of waste properly
