Our Mission: Remote Footprints is a nonprofit organization dedicated to utilizing experiential outdoor learning and scientific exploration as tools to inspire individuals and families to appreciate biodiversity and remote areas.
Project Remote. We are identifying the remotest locations in each of the 50 United States–and mounting documentary expeditions into them–to generate new knowledge about these special, previously unknown, places. Follow us as we learn just how remote America remains in the early 21st century.
Building Communities that Conserve Wetlands. This project includes 2 programs: What Lives in the Wetland and Adopt an Ephemeral Wetland. Both programs are based in the Munson Sandhills of the Apalachicola National Forest. Click here to access our project-specific website.
Get Outside. We offer many resources to help you get outside and experience the joy of being remote. Visit this page for questions about remote locations near you, citizen science opportunities, and details about our Ecological Discovery Series and Camping Clinics.
Discussion. Join the conversation about remoteness. This page provides an opportunity to voice your opinion about remoteness in our country, your definition of remote, and where we should go from here. Look at the picture at left to see how fun discussion can be!
Remote Resources. Journal articles, reports, and other publications we have found useful during our research of road impacts and roadless areas. Soon we will add more resources and quantitative tools for stakeholders to introduce remoteness as a significant part of the wilderness conservation movement.
Take Action. This page is a resource for information about the latest in roadless area conservation issues and opportunities to join the remoteness discussion.
Please browse our web pages to learn more about remote areas conservation. Remote Footprints cannot accomplish its mission without the support of people and organizations like you who share our belief that it is necessary to preserve remote, roadless areas and connect people to wildlands.
