Leave No Trace Tips: The Seven Principles

A new feature to the Hike NS E-News Bulletin is our Leave No Trace Tips section. Each month, we’ll highlight some aspect of one of the seven Principles of Leave No Trace, which build awareness, appreciation and respect for our wildlands. If we all try to keep these seven Principles in mind as we enjoy the outdoors, it will help to conserve and protect our natural environment. Leave No Trace Canada is a national non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and inspiring responsible outdoor recreation through education, research and partnerships. Hike Nova Scotia is a member and endorses and promotes the Leave No Trace Principles when hiking, walking and snowshoeing:

1.    Plan Ahead and Prepare
2.    Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
3.    Dispose of Waste Properly
4.    Leave What You Find
5.    Minimize Campfire Impacts
6.    Respect Wildlife
7.    Be Considerate of Other Visitors
