You see the Leave No Trace logo frequently - on websites, educational materials, at trail heads, etc. Have you ever stopped to wonder, however, where the logo came from or what it means?
Wildflower photography, and photography of the outdoors in general, is one of the fastest growing recreational activities in the United States. How can you respect this delicate nature by "Leaving What You Find" and also get a great shot?
For Kathryn Beals, time spent in the outdoors is more than just recreation - it's fuel for her artistic fire. Artist and resident of California, Beals has been turning outdoor memories in to art for years, all with an eye toward Leave No Trace.
Event Highlight: Outdoor Nation Youth Summit.
"Ultimately, to succeed in reconnecting young people with the outdoors, youth must help lead the way - spurring a cultural movement where youth are empowered to redefine, reclaim ad rediscover the outdoors." THIS is Outdoor Nation.
