Greetings from Florida!

While hiking the other day in St. Joseph Peninsula State Park in Florida, I had a chance to get some beach time in a beautiful place and learn some new ways to Leave No Trace. The clear white sand dunes of Florida's panhandle beaches support native plant and wildlife, and provide nesting habitat for endangered sea turtles. So even though sand may be a seemingly durable surface, it still maintains a fragile environment. Please stay on established trails when hiking in these areas!

For more information, please visit the Florida State Parks website and the Clean Beaches Council.
