THE SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF LEAVE NO TRACE AT THE FRENDLY GATHERING:
1. Plan ahead and Prepare:
By taking the time to plan ahead, you can minimize your waste and pack weight! Only bring what you absolutely NEED (like a reusable water bottle). This will allow you to actually enjoy the festival rather than be responsible for all the items you brought, plus the shuttle ride is much easier when you pack light!
2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces:
Durable surfaces include established trails and campsites that the Frendly Crew worked hard for you to enjoy!
3. Dispose of Waste Properly:
If you pack it in, pack it out. Please separate your recyclables and compostable items from the trash and bring them to your nearest waste corral.
4. Leave What You Find:
Leave rocks, plants, trees and other natural objects as you find them. When leaving Frendly Gathering, please clean up your campsite!
5. Minimize Campfire Impacts:
Fires are only allowed in the designated campfire locations, do not start your own. If you need to cook bring your own lightweight camp stove.
6. Respect Wildlife:
Respect the Timber Ridge wildlife by observing them from a distance and not approaching them or feeding them. Please do not leave your food out. Store food and trash properly and securely.
7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors:
Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience by being a Frendly neighbor.
