Leave No Trace and Wilderness Medicine
It's late in the day and has raining since breakfast. Your group is moving along the trail but at a much slower pace than you had hoped for, and the chances of making the intended campsite are not looking good. You try to motivate your group to keep moving but most of them, despite being prepared, are soaked to the bone.
As you push on, you come to the final creek crossing of the day and thankfully there's a log bridge. The first six members of your group safely navigate the slick bridge but the last, and strongest, member of your group makes it halfway across, slips and ends up falling into the icy water. Thankfully the creek isn't too large but it's swollen from the rain and is swift enough to carry her 50 feet downstream. When she finally stops in a calm section of the creek, you immediately notice that she has blood running down her face and is holding onto her arm, screaming in pain. What now?
More You Need To Know
The Center is surveying people and organizations across the country to collect and record the impact you didn't have because you practiced Leave No Trace. This survey will guide the future of Leave No Trace outreach so that more people can protect the places we all love.
Last year 138 million people enjoyed outdoor activities every week - thus 11 BILLION
times that people interacted with nature in just a year. We know that practicing Leave No Trace is important to you, so please take a moment to complete the survey.
