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.

    To explore the beauty of nature trails in Hong Kong

  • Public talks and lectures

    To understand the underlying cause of the accelerated deterioration and erosion of hiking trails, the state of hiking trails and the challenge in managing trail use

  • Promote "Love our trail" message

    To foster the care of natural environment, and avoid any behavior that cause negative impact to the trails and countryside environment

  • Repair your own trails

好多路過嘅行山人士都開口問我哋係邊個,擔心係咪偷掘植物和泥土?有呢份懷疑絕對係非常之好👍🏻👍🏻大家即管問我哋,我哋樂意解答。我哋嘅義工會👇🏻

2️⃣現場展示綠惜地球logo,提醒大家工作進行中,行過時要注意安全
3️⃣接受過山徑維修培訓,能為你解釋維修工序及山徑保育知識
4️⃣攜有漁護署發出嘅許可証

今日大熱天時,我哋去咗麥徑第五段,一口氣處理山徑上20條塞滿沙石同枯葉嘅疏水道💪🏻落大雨就唔怕去唔切水,會沖散天然山徑,形成沖溝同水氹啦💦
#即刻畀個like感謝一眾炎夏勞苦功高嘅山徑通渠師啦💚
