You wouldn't want that mess in your yard, would you?
Have you ever shown up to your favorite spot in the forest to find piles of garbage, old campfire pits and tiny bits of toilet paper snagged in the brush? If it can ruin your visit, just think what it does to the environment you've come out to enjoy.
Even a little bit of garbage can hurt the ecosystem, injure or kill wildlife and increase the chances of natural areas being closed to public use. One person can make a difference in everyone's forest experience. You can help by working with the Oregon Department of Forestry to keep forests and streams clean by being good stewards of the land practicing Leave No Trace land use principles during your visit.
