Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace

LNT Logo colourLeave No Trace Ireland aims to promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation through education, research and partnerships. It began in 2004 as a concerted effort across a range of recreational and land-managing bodies to address the increasing burden of negative impacts on the mountains. Today, Leave No Trace Ireland exists as a not-for-profit company run by volunteers and employing one part-time person.

At the heart of Leave No Trace is an educational message that encourages us as recreational users to understand the consequences of our actions, and challenges us to make good choices when we do our activities in the outdoors. The program uses a framework of seven principles to guide us towards better choices:

1. Plan Ahead and Prepare

2. Be Considerate of Others

3. Respect Farm Animals and Wildlife

4. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces

5. Leave What You Find

6. Dispose of Waste Properly

7. Minimise the Effects of Fire

The Burren & Cliffs of Moher Geopark endorses the these messages, we aim to adhere to this principles during all outdoor activities and events and we have incorporated Leave No Trace into our training programme.
