Practice Good Stewardship of our Public Lands:
You can help to take good care of our public lands so that others may enjoy these areas for years to come by practicing some of the following actions:
Don't Litter... take along a trash bag or other receptacle for collecting your trash so that you can deposit it in the proper trash receptacle.
Make sure that you follow the verbal or posted directions by local staff so that you can both enjoy and respect the historic and cultural resources and vegetation on nature walks and outdoor programs. Don't take anything away and don't leave anything from your visit to the great outdoors.
Don't wander into areas where it is not permitted. These areas have been
declared "off limits" to protect wildlife, vegetation, or for your safety.
