Class: Reducing you backcountry footprint




Reduce Your Backcountry Footprint! Ever consider the impact you leave on our great mother earth as outdoor enthusiast? Even with the best intentions, it’s easy to leave a lasting scar on the very environment we love so dearly. Sadly these impacts are becoming more notable on our trail systems and backcountry campsites. Between trash dumping, trail cutting and the lack of backcountry conservation practices, our forest are at great risk of overuse and abuse.

What is your BackcountryFootprint? Are you aware of the environmental impacts you may leave behind? What can you do to minimize your footprint?

Course Topics What is a backcountry footprint? Trip planning and preparation Soil and environmental impacts Campsite selection and clean up Fire site preparation and care Human waste, what to do? Wildfire awareness Respect for others

Course Info Asheville Adventure Rentals March 7,[masked]:00-7:30 Fee: $5 Pleas call AAR to preregister

If moving through the woods, leaving lile impact is important to you; then we encourage you to take part!

704 Riverside Drive Asheville NC,[masked]
