- Keep wildlife wild by admiring from a distance
- Walk and bike more, drive less, and keep to the trail.
- Channel your inner bigfoot and Leave No Trace of your visit.
- Tube the Yampa River without trashing the Yampa River.
- Understand fire restrictions before you head out, fully extinguish campfires, and know a s’more isn’t worth risking a wildfire.
- Make a plan before you venture out and be prepared for a mountain of conditions.
- Fill up your reusable water bottle and stay hydrated. All. Day. Long.
- Know your limits and take care of yourself so first responders won’t need to.
