The BLM welcomes you to explore and enjoy America’s public lands and waters. Millions of people visit public lands each year and the combined effects of these visits begin to leave a mark on the land. It is the responsibility of each person to develop a personal set of outdoor ethics to ensure that millions of visitors to public lands will continue to make lasting memories for generations to come.
Leave No Trace is an outdoor ethics program which provides research, education and initiatives so every person who ventures outside can protect and enjoy the outdoors responsibly. Visit the Leave No Trace website, at lnt.org, to learn more.
