The government shutdown has caused major disruptions at national parks and on federal lands. Leave No Trace has provided a guide for people to follow during the shutdown. The first advice we can give is to visit your State Parks. They remain open and fully staffed. Click here to visit the NM State Parks webpage and plan your visit.
Leave No Trace's guidelines can be found here. Remember, regular waste pick up and maintenance are not occurring, so if you choose to visit a national park during the shutdown, it is 100% your responsibility to keep it clean.
It's Our Responsibility!
