Leave No Trace (LNT)
Leave No Trace (LNT) is an ethic that promotes responsible stewardship of the natural world. The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching people LNT principles.
LC’s Outdoor Leadership Program promotes Leave No Trace ethics throughout all of our courses and activities. We are also an LNT Virginia Active Partner with the national center. Paul Stern, director of the Lynchburg College Outdoor Leadership Program, is a master educator, and six student Leave No Trace trainers lead outdoor programs.
