In Scotland we are fortunate in having progressive legal access to our wild places, whether it’s to walk the mountains, camp by a river or follow long distance walking trails. Leave No Trace encourages us to adventure responsibly.
LNT encourages us to make sound ethical decisions when we’re in the outdoors and is built on 7 principals:
LNT has been adopted and adapted to local environments around the world. The movement evolved from the need to have as little impact as possible on the wild places we all enjoy. In 1987 the U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service and Bureau of Land Management got together and a "no trace" programme was formed for wilderness travel. By 1994 this had developed into a non-profit organisation: The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.
This 1-day practical workshop covers all 7 principals. Our time used to be divided between indoor and outdoor learning. However, with the need for social distancing it's now been adapted to take place outdoors only. There are a maximum of 8 spaces per workshop.
