Pick up Garbage

Leave No Trace!

Leave no trace means packing out what you packed in. This means toilet paper!

Tip! Bring a ziplock for garbage, and burn or bury toilet paper!

Respect the land

Respect the Land!

Access in the David Thompson Corridor is unique in Alberta. Many places are special to the local Indigenous communities.

Tip! Reckless treatment of the land will ensure easy access to the corridor ends.

Say Hi!

Respect Others!

Everyone is here for recreation. There is no need to wreck someones day by blowing stuff up or being a jerk face.

Tip! Smiling is contagious. Be a teacher instead of a complainer.
