Explore & Protect
Leave No Trace
LEAVE NO TRACE! Wild West Voyages is a Leave No Trace outfitter. We model and teach these practices in all our endeavors. Whether you take a guided tour or venture out on your own, please join us in preserving the resources that make this place AWESOME!
All our land tours will feature an informative talk about the desert’s biological soil crust. It’s essentially a whole community of living organisms that make up the fabric of our landscape. It’s our job to protect it so it can continue to serve its purpose and help our treasured ecosystem continue to thrive! More here:
Adventuring on your own? There is much to see and do in the Moab area. Please take a minute to watch this informational video on how to protect the resources you enjoy while taking safety precautions for yourself:
Going out into the wilderness for a few hours? A few days? Plan properly and remember the Ten Essentials as listed by the American Hiking Society:
CAMPING ALONG THE RIVER OR ON OTHER PUBLIC LANDS
Are you planning an overnight float along the Moab Daily section of the Colorado River? Here is a link to a camping map of approved campsites along the river corridor.
When camping on public lands please take great care to preserve these spaces and ecosystems for all to enjoy. Bureau of Land Management Moab Field Office has published and enforces camping regulations for the area. Of particular note, be sure to carry out all trash including solid human waste in an approved container. Wild West Voyages has Rest Stop II bags for sale in our storefront. These can be disposed of in a special receptable at the Southeast Utah Health Department 575 Kane Creek Blvd, Moab, UT 84532, just down the street from our office (PLEASE do not deposit these in our trash cans, this is not approved item for general trash pickup). If camping along the river, additionally bring a fire pan and pack and carry out your ashes, and do not gather firewood along the river. More information here.
