Proud Leave No Trace Partner
The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace provide an easily understood framework of minimum impact practices for anyone visiting the outdoors. Although Leave No Trace has its roots in backcountry settings, the Principles have been adapted so that they can be applied anywhere — from remote wilderness areas, to local parks and even in your own backyard. They also apply to almost every recreational activity. Each Principle covers a specific topic and provides detailed information for minimizing impacts.
Event Rentals at our Public nature areas
Southern Conservation Trust Nature Areas are available to rent depending on the area and event. Each public area offers different facilities and opportunities. Requests must be submitted at least six weeks before the event. The Southern Conservation Trust cares deeply about the areas it manages and reserves the right to refuse any event that will have a negative effect on the area.
