Wilderness Ethics: How to Minimize Your Impact

Wilderness Ethics: How to Minimize Your Impact

The next question that should be asked is, “How can I minimize my impact?”

To consider this question, it is helpful to know the seven Leave No Trace Principles. Leave No Trace (LNT) is an organization that encourages responsible recreation by teaching outdoor ethics. I encourage you to read through each principle and jot down a list of impacts that you can identify from your own recreation, and to the side, brainstorm a tangible way that you can minimize each impact.
