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.
The Leave No Trace movement evolved from a 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” program was formed for wilderness travel. By 1994 this had developed into a non-profit organisation: The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.
LNT has been adopted and adapted to local environments around the world.
LNT encourages us to make sound ethical decisions when we’re in the outdoors and is built on 7 principals:
This 1-day practical workshop covers all 7 principals. Our time is divided between indoor and outdoor learning and is adapted to the needs and experience of the group. There are a maximum of 12 spaces per workshop.
