With the expedition season starting, please remember the importance of participants (and adults) respecting the environment. Please ensure participants understand land access laws, and adhere to the Countryside Code.
Be careful where cars and minibuses are parked, and remember that you will be representing your organisation and the DofE at all times on your expedition.
There were a number of reports last years of participants damaging dry stone walls by climbing over them. Please check that groups know they must use stiles, gates or gaps in field boundaries. Lastly, make sure you leave no trace!
