Learn the seven principles of Leave No Trace by a Trainer while hiking in Scioto Groves Metropark! Leave No Trace is an organization advocating outdoor ethics that promote conservation in the outdoors. Knowing the principles of Leave No Trace is essential when backpacking, hiking, kayaking, fishing, biking, etc..

During this hike, we will learn the principles with hands-on activities:

plan ahead and prepare,
travel and camp on durable surfaces,
dispose of waste properly,
leave what you find,
minimize campfire impacts,
respect wildlife,
be considerate of other visitors

We will learn how to dig proper cat holes for waste, how to clean up your back country meals, how to hang a bear bag, how to make a Leave No Trace fire when fire rings are not present, and more!
