Project Leave-No-Trace  

Posted by ReelTym

Project Leave No Trace is an educational program designed to provide information, materials, and support for youth leaders interested in the ethics and skills fundamental to "Leave No Trace" outdoor recreation.

The roots of Project Leave No Trace lie in one Wilderness Ranger’s desire to be proactive about reducing impact to Washington’s Wilderness areas. Her ideas brought the commitment of numerous people who worked together to design a program that met the goals and needs of all the partners. Since its inception, Project Leave No Trace has grown and evolved, continually improving its effectiveness and content.

The program is designed to multiply its effect by training adult leaders who then teach their youth groups and share the program with other leaders who will do the same. The program is laid out in three parts:
