Are You Outside Kind?

     Organizations like Prickly Pear Land Trust and Gallatin Valley Land Trust have joined “Outside Kind”, a national campaign to instill respectful and thoughtful best practices for outdoor events and activities. Communities like Bozeman and Helena have wonderful trail systems (thanks in large part to GVLT and PPLT) but the increasing popularity (and conflicts) of those trails is an emerging issue, and Outside Kind is designed to help ensure positive experiences outdoors.    

     From the Outside Kind website: The Outside Kind Alliance, which consists of several local organizations and is facilitated by One Montana, joined forces to protect the people and places we love, and to explore ethical use issues that all recreational users need to know about. We want everyone to have a great experience, understand how to enjoy the outdoors while sharing it with others and treading lightly on the resource.
