Leave No Trace
The ethics and techniques of “Leave No Trace” camping were developed by the National Outdoor Leadership School to assist outdoor users in minimizing their impacts on wild places. When camping in the Saguaro Wilderness Area, we ask that you adopt these ethics and techniques to help us protect and preserve this Sonoran Desert treasure.
Principles of Leave No Trace
For additional information, a series of booklets are available from NOLS. Saguaro National Park recommends “Desert & Canyon Country” & “Backcountry Horse Use”.
