What is leave no trace and why is it important?

Leave no trace essentially means whatever you pack in, you also pack out. This means you need to have a plan for disposing of your trash and taking it with you. We will leave the property better than we found it. This ideal has many rewards. We respect the property and its owner, we help keep the environment clean and we own our own mess which goes back to radical self reliance.
