LEAVE NO TRACE
MAKE OUR NATURE TRAIL
SUSTAINABLE

 

Promote sustainable hiking attitude and
trail management through public education activities

WHAT'S UP

The general public in Hong Kong loves visiting country trails,
however, the frequent visits may accelerate soil erosion of nature trails.
The Green Earth launched the
“ECF Make Our Nature Trails Sustainable – Leave No Trace Education Programme”
in Aug 2018. Though public engagement activities,
we promote the sustainable use and management of hiking trails.

尋晚「行大嶼,惜大嶼」公眾講座系列「遊走大嶼 — 閱•山」圓滿舉行,感謝140位朋友參加👏🏻,更感謝 兩位嘉賓 山城縱走 hkhiker Matthew 同 Herman分享咗好多珍貴嘅行山藏書、雜誌同遊記📚,同大家回顧從前山界前輩嘅 #遊大嶼行程#綠色本地遊🎒。

最令大家驚訝係《香港掌故》入面嘅記錄,原來朱維德(朱翁)前輩曾經舉辦「直昇機敖遊」團,由青山飛往鳳凰山山腰起步,登上山頂,再落昂坪食齋!呢類行程真係可一不可再,但令好多資深行友聽到 #回憶返晒嚟 ,諗可持續大嶼 Sustainable Lantau舊行山書除咗講路線、掌故、交通資訊等資料外,仲有同「無痕山林」相關嘅實用山野知識🤓,由如何防蜂、防中暑至防山火都會提到。所以話「行山」最重要都係「惜山」,先可以長玩長有。

希望書中記載嘅美好風光可以持續,多年後青山綠水仍在🏔,大家幾時都要好好保護香港郊野啊!
