The seven principles of "Leave No Trace" for outdoor adventures are:

Plan Ahead and Prepare[]

Know the regulations and concerns for the area you'll visit.

Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces[]

Stick to trails and remember, good campsites are found, not made.

Dispose of Waste Properly[]

Pack it in, pack it out.

Leave What You Find[]

Leave rocks, plants, and other natural objects as you find them.

Minimize Campfire Impacts[]

Where fires are permitted, use established fire rings.

Respect Wildlife[]

Observe wildlife from a distance and never feed them.

Be Considerate of Other Visitors[]

Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience.
