Hiking Conservation

Help keep trails open and in good condition so that those new in the ways of the woods will know the way and have a happier experience.

Carry back to camp all rubbish and paper found on trail in litter bags so that those camping later will enjoy all natural products.

Ask permission before going onto private land, and be particularly careful of fences, crops and domestic animals.

Be careful about destroying vegetation.  Do not needlessly mutilate flowers, ferns or trees, nor wildlife.  Find out what plants should be cut or picked sparingly for exhibit only or not cut at all.  Find out those plants that can be cut or picked at any time in your camp area.  (Hostess looking for centerpieces should be helped to know what they may use and what they may not use.)
