(and why BSA chose it) The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics says: Leave No Trace is an national and international program designed to assist outdoor enthusiasts with their decisions about how to reduce their impacts when they hike, camp, picnic, snowshoe, run, bike, hunt, paddle, ride horses, fish, ski or climb. The program strives to educate all those who enjoy the outdoors about the nature of their recreational impacts as well as techniques to prevent and minimize such impacts. Leave No Trace is best understood as an educational and ethical program, not as a set of rules and regulations. Program is organized around the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace. Like Scouting, Leave No Trace aims at character development.
