If you’ve been enjoying responsible recreation you’ve also been picking up trash as you go. The rule is that you should leave the space as you found it, but I’d like to encourage you to leave the space better than you found it.
As I recreate on public and state lands in Colorado, one thing I seem to find every time I go is other people’s trash. While I find it annoying, I also feel the need to clean up after other people and hope that you do too.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are more people than ever in the outdoors and you may be one of them. Take the oath of Responsible Recreation before you go, and encourage others to do the same.
Stay tuned as in partnership with the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and the #ResponsibleRecreation movement, I’ll be sharing several outdoor lessons in the coming weeks. Lesson 1 is listed below. Tell me what you learn and what you find while you’re outdoors.
