14 4. Leave What You Found Look and enjoy what you see Do not alter sites by building or digging Replace what you clear from a campsite Cleanup high impact campsites Good campsites are found - Not made NE-II-177 7A

15 5. Minimize Campfire Impacts NE-II-177 8

16 5. Minimize Campfire Impacts Use lightweight stoves Use existing fire rings in a well placed campsite Leave No Trace fires are small and burnt down to ashes LNT fires do not leave scorched rock or dead earth Be certain all wood and campfire debris is dead out NE-II-177 8A

17 6. Respect Wildlife NE-II-177 9

21 The Outdoor Experience NE-II-177 11

22 The Outdoor Experience During the pre-opening activity, you shared information with each other about the gear and clothing you will take with you for the upcoming Outdoor Experience. Later in this meeting, the patrol will discuss group gear, menus and cooking methods. Can you explain how your choices of equipment, clothing and menus are effected by Leave No Trace principles? NE-II-177 11A

23 NE-II-177 12

24 NE-II-177 12A Different outdoor settings or activities require different ways of thinking about Leave No Trace. Hand out copies of the Alpine setting. The picture in front of you is an Alpine Setting. This is just one type of environment that you could be camping in. You can tell from the number of fire rings, log benches and numerous trails that others have camped here often. Where should you camp? (Camp in the well-used areas near the fire rings and avoid the surrounding area that shows little or no impact.) Scenario 1: Alpine Setting

25 How can we insure the use of Leave No Trace principles in our home units, districts and councils? NE-II-177 13

26 How can we insure the use of Leave No Trace principles in our home units, districts and councils? Ask for some ideas, then offer the following: Challenge Scouts and Scouters to earn the LNT Awareness Award. Invite representatives of land management agencies to share LNT presentations at Scout meetings. Remind Scouts that the LNT principles are prominently listed in the Boy Scout handbook Offer Scout units no other alternative. If LNT principles are the guidelines by which Cub packs, Scout troops and Venturing crews always operate, that way of thinking will become second nature. NE-II-177 13A
