The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, in conjunction with Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails and Colorado State University, initiated a Leave No Trace-focused study involving three different state parks in Wyoming in 2012. The goal of the research was to explore the potential efficacy of Leave No Trace in state park settings.

Conservation Foundation Finds Value in Leave No Trace Partnership

      The Situation: Leash Laws

For years you have been going to the same local park to hike with your dog, where dogs are allowed to be off-leash. Since your dog is stuck indoors all day while you are at work, you love to let him run free. One day you decide to go to a new park across town and upon arrival -without a leash -  you are greeted by the following sign at the trailhead. Email us with your answer of what you would do in this situation!

      Tech Tip: Canine Comfort 
Hiking with your dog?  When your dog first wears a backpack, be sure that the strap behind the dog's front legs does not rub against the back of his/her legs. This can be very uncomfortable for the dog as it can rub their skin raw if the chest strap is too tight. Let the dog carry it's own food and water, but be sure to keep him/her comfortable.
