What's In Your Campfire?
While most people familiar with Leave No Trace do not burn trash, those who are uninformed occasionally (or perhaps more often) burn trash in their campfire. While this seemingly innocent act may not cause seemingly significant immediate impacts, read more to learn about the impacts that do exist.

The Situation 

While camped in an area that does not allow collection of wood for fuel, you notice people a few campsites over dragging large logs to their fire ring. It's getting dark and the temperature is dropping, but the campsite host that typically sells firewood isn't around and the wood is locked up. While driving in, you noticed another campsite host a few miles up the road. What do you do?


Email us and let us know what you would do. Responses will be published in next month's eNews.  Review the responses to the March situation.

Tech Tip

Get Ready For Spring  

As the snow melts and puddles begin to form on the trail, be sure to wear mud-ready boots or shoes and gators so you can tromp right through to prevent erosion and damage to trail-side vegetation during this sensitive time of year.
