Leave No Trace – Seven Principles

As part of the Walk for Wildlife weekend at Cape Breton Highlands National Park, a Leave No Trace workshop was held at the Jack Pine Trail.  This workshop was sponsored by Hike Nova Scotia.  Andrew Dunn and Ben Parsons were our instructors from MEC – Mountain Equipment Co-op in Halifax. They did a great job explaining the seven principles of Leave No Trace.  All hikers should follow these principles.

Seven principles of Leave No Trace  are –  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, and 7) Be considerate of Other Visitors.  For more information on Leave No Trace visit their website.
