- Plan Ahead and Prepare: Think of this as your pre-adventure adventure! Research your destination, understand its specific regulations and dangers, and pack smart. Remember, a well-prepared explorer is a responsible explorer.
- Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces: Stick to the trail and camp in designated spots. It's not just about keeping things tidy; we're helping to protect delicate ecosystems. Imagine we're all adventurers walking on eggshells. Let's tread lightly!
- Dispose of Waste Properly: In the wild, there are no waste bins, but we have a golden rule: Pack it in, Pack it out! All the trash we generate comes back with us. Yes, even that tiny candy wrapper!
- Leave What You Find: We know that super cool rock or vibrant wildflower would look great on your mantle, but in the wild, take only photos, leave only footprints. Let's leave the beauty for others to discover.
- Minimize Campfire Impact: A roaring campfire is a classic, but let's be fire-wise! Use a camp stove for cooking, and if you must have a fire, keep it small and use existing fire rings.
- Respect Wildlife: Meeting wildlife is exciting but remember we're guests in their home. Observe from a distance, never feed animals, and store food securely. Remember the Hibear motto, "Be wild, don't disturb the wild!"
- Be Considerate of Other Visitors: Share the trail and the spirit of the great outdoors. Keep noise levels low and let nature's sounds prevail.
Mastering the 'Leave No Trace' principles is like unlocking a new level in our Adventure Game. It deepens our connection with nature and enhances our adventure experiences. Let's promise to be mindful adventurers, embracing the wild while preserving its untamed beauty!
