RED: HIGH IMPACT TRACE
Also known as hot spots, the impact trace conditions embedded into the playa in your vicinity were heavily problematic and spread out over a vast area. Get your restoration team and tools together. Set your boundaries, do your line sweep, identify the issues, restore… go green!
YELLOW: MODERATE IMPACT TRACE
While neither the best nor worst, your impact trace is the ever-changing average. On the bright side, with a good strategy your camp has strong potential to go green. However, slack could easily put your camp into the red.
GREEN: LOW TO NO IMPACT TRACE
Green as in GO! GO! GO! You get an A+ for awesome. Your camping area left no trace. Keep up the good work! BLACK ROCK CITY SALUTES YOU. Please share your LNT strategies with your friends and fellow campers.
