Being an old Scoutmaster and scouter for over 20 years the Leave No Trace credo is ingrained. It infuriates me to see what others do to the resource with no thought. I taught my scouts along with my sons how we should respect the resource as well as give back. They may not have adopted all of my values, but they definitely know how to go into the backcountry and leave no trace. Usually we end up carrying out much more than we ever took in due to those who don't give a care.
Great article, thanks for sharing.
