This program is designed to encourage reuse and recycling practices. We all share the responsibility for managing solid waste and the park's environment.

Fort Necessity National Battlefield, Friendship Hill National Historic Site, Johnstown Flood National Memorial, and Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site participate in the "Leave no Trace" program.
