Leave No Trace Philosophy

The seven principles of Leave No Trace are a useful and practical guide for anyone to enjoy nature and outdoor activities responsibly.

Since 2018 we have been community members of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, and we promote these principles through talks, webinars and training courses.

We have trained more than 30 people as trainers
together with NOLS Mexico, in addition to providing workshops and webinars on environmental ethics.

By promoting the skills of this philosophy, we want to contribute to healthy natural protected areas.

Leave No Trace Proud Partner

Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and inspiring responsible outdoor recreation through education, research and partnerships.

This program promotes skills and principles to support the sustainable use of public lands. The idea was born in the 1970s in the United States as a way to minimize the impact of outdoor recreation on natural areas.

The first training course was in 2018, staff from Sierra San Pedro Martir National Park participated, as well as people from El Rosario and San Quintin.

Park rangers and people from San Quintin and Ensenada participated in the second training course in 2019.

More than 100 people participated in the series of webinars that we gave in 2020 for free.
