Leave No Trace Walk - Ordem dos Engenheiros

The North Regional Council of the College of Environmental Engineering, in partnership with Quokka, is organising a hike on 16 September in Serra d'Arga.

With this activity, the North Regional Council of the College of Environmental Engineering will provide participants with contact with nature and at the same time teach the 7 principles of "Leave no trace", encouraging responsibility in recreational activities in nature.

At each principle, the group will stop for a short 5-minute activity, as the aim is to enjoy nature. During the snack break, a mountain tea will be made with mountain herbs and through a fire with no impact. This will be the moment to work on the principle of fire.
