Leave No Trace Training Centre

Kilfinane OEC is delighted to announce that we have entered into an agreement with Leave No Trace Ireland to become a recognised training Centre.

This agreement will involve the delivery of Leave No Trace awareness sessions and Trainer Courses at Kilfinane OEC on behalf of Leave No Trace Ireland. Keep an eye on our training course calendar for further details.

Leave No Trace is an Outdoor Ethics Programme designed to promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation through education, research, and partnerships. An ethic can be defined as knowing what the right thing to do is, and doing it, even if there is no one about to see you do it. Leave No Trace depends more on attitude and awareness than on rules and regulations. Techniques designed to minimise the social and environmental impacts to the outdoors are incorporated into the Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics Education Programme as seven principles.

 

The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace

  1. Plan Ahead and Prepare
  2. Be Considerate of Others
  3. Respect Farm Animals and Wildlife
  4. Travel and Camp on Durable Ground
  5. Leave What You Find
  6. Dispose of Waste Properly
  7. Minimise the Effects of Fire

 

Practice a Leave No Trace ethic: Make it hard for others to see or hear you and LEAVE NO TRACE of your visit.
