Take all your waste with you before you leave, making sure to leave the space as you found it.

  2. Hiking Adventure: Embrace the beauty of nature by embarking on a hiking adventure. Research nearby hiking trails, national parks, or nature reserves, and choose one that suits your preferences and skill level. Whether you opt for a challenging trek or a leisurely stroll, take in the breathtaking landscapes, listen to the sounds of nature, and breathe in the fresh air. Tip: Remember to pack water, snacks, and appropriate footwear for a safe and enjoyable hike.
