Nevada Outdoor School's Outdoor Ethics Program

If you enjoy panoramic views, vast openness of playa, winding your way through deep canyons, rugged mountain peaks, racing up sand dunes, or simply breathing in fresh air; outdoor ethics are essential to you. Through Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly! and ATV Safety programming NOS is inspiring a culture of outdoor ethics and responsible stewardship in Northern Nevada. You will find NOS Outdoor Ethics outreach at local schools, field trips, summer camps and special events. Additionally, look for us at "Road Show" events all across Nevada. Our goal is to keep pulic lands open and beautiful for generations to come.
