How can I help keep Oxford County beautiful and healthy?

Bring along your favourite reusable water bottle. Leave all places in a better state than when you arrived. Give wildlife space; even if animals do not run away from you, they may be protecting young. Provide adequate space for flora and fauna. Take in the changing terrain, stay on the path and avoid them during wet/muddy periods. If the parking lot is full at the trail you're visiting, consider coming back at a different time or choosing a different trail to avoid overuse. Finally, take only photos and leave only footprints. If you'd like to give back, you can consider purchasing a tree.
