We are thrilled to partner with Leave No Trace Canada and team and work toward our shared goal of protecting the environment. At LCS, we believe teaching respect for the Earth and respect for people go hand-in-hand and we are dedicated to promoting environmentally responsible practices. Leave No Trace's mission to promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation aligns perfectly with our own efforts to reduce our impact on the environment.
One of the ways we promote environmental responsibility at LCS is by incorporating Leave No Trace's Seven Principles into our Outdoor Education program. These principles include: planning ahead and preparing, traveling and camping on durable surfaces, disposing of waste properly, leaving what you find, minimizing campfire impact, respecting wildlife, and being considerate of other visitors.
By practicing these principles in our OE classes and during multi-day outings, such as our Irving and Ondaatje Expeditions and Round Square Service trips, students are learning how to make a positive impact on the environment. This partnership with Leave No Trace Canada allows us to communicate to the wider community that LCS takes its responsibility to the environment seriously and encourages individuals to make a positive impact on their local environment.
