Our Thoughts on Getting Outside
One of Seven Project wants to take a moment to talk about getting outside. You probably already know our mission is to encourage and help others know and follow their passion(s). We hope that when you do, you do so responsibly. As our website’s name says, there are 7 billion people on earth. With more and more people getting outside, it’s important we maintain and protect our wilderness areas. The Project encourages everyone to practice Leave No Trace principles and to Recreate Responsibly.
Planning a trip has a lot of elements. Everything from where to when, where to resupply, water sources, drive time and more. The Project believes it’s everyone’s job to also know other things too. Things like the history of where your trip is taking you. Also does it have issues? Is it endangered? Are there sensitive areas?
If the answer is yes to any of the above, is there a group in charge or overseeing the area? Consider finding out if they need help and how you can lean a hand. It doesn’t take much when we all pitch. With seven billion people it’s easy to think you don’t matter or they probably already have what they need. Unfortunately this is dangerous thinking, because when everyone does it, those organizations and areas suffer.
The Project celebrates what makes us unique but together we can help maintain and protect our wilderness areas for generations to come. So be sure that you recreate responsibly, give back and help ensure those areas we love to recreate in, are there tomorrow for generations to come.
