Leave No Trace

What is Leave No Trace?

Leave No Trace (LNT) is about attitude and ethics. It’s about taking personal responsibility to respect and care for our limited wildland resources and the experiences of other outdoor enthusiasts. Low-impact skills and knowledge are also an important part of LNT, but without the right attitude and ethic, they are useless. You must commit yourself to apply them, to practice good stewardship.

 

Interagency Pass Program

The new Interagency Pass Program combines the benefits of existing recreation passes from five Federal agencies into one comprehensive pass. For additional information or to purchase a pass go to http://www.nps.gov/fees_passes.htm or stop by any National Park Site or other federal land agencies that charges an entrance fee.

A picture of President Abraham Lincoln

Lincoln was the first president to give national status to Thanksgiving Day. His last proclamation, October 20, 1864, appointed and set “apart the last Thursday of November...to be observed by all…as a day of thanksgiving and praise to Almighty God, the beneficent Creator and Ruler of the universe.”
