Leave No Trace

When visiting the national parks, make sure to follow the Leave No Trace Seven Principles.

  • Plan Ahead and Prepare
  • Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
  • Dispose of Waste Properly
  • Leave What You Find

  • Be Considerate of Other Visitors

Protect Wildlife

Make sure to keep the wildlife and yourself safe, by following these simple rules.

  • Control pets or don’t bring them
  • Avoid wildlife when they are mating, nesting, and raising young, as well as during wintertime.

Stay on Trails

Stick to the trails when hiking and driving. This will prevent damage to vegetation and other wildlife that are trying to survive. It also reduces the impact on the land and waterways and keeps the land looking beautiful instead of scarred by many trails.

Follow Rules

The national parks have rules to help protect and preserve beautiful landscapes. Please follow those rules as you visit so that future generations can experience the natural beauty that you enjoy. Recreate responsibly.

Follow Posted Speed Limits

When driving through the national parks, the posted speed limits are there for a reason. Wildlife can be found on the roadways as well as people stopping to see the views. We can keep ourselves and others safe as well as the natural wildlife when we follow the posted speed limits.
