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.
Citizen Science. Are you interested in being an integral part of science? We invite you to join us in our ongoing scientific field research projects. After all, the best way to learn is to get out and experience! Click here to learn about our new Adopt an Ephemeral Wetland program in the Apalachicola National Forest.
(New!) Remote Notes Blog – As we travel around the country for Project Remote, work locally on our various conservation projects, and generally live our lives as biologists, we will share with you what we see and what we learn.
Guided Eco-Jaunts. With over 40 years of combined experience as wildlife biologists, we can provide unique, guided adventures of Florida natural wonders. From wild spring runs to researching endangered species, or a trip of your design, you will have an outdoor experience like no other!
Go Remote. 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, nature-based teaching activities, recommendations for outdoor activities in North Florida, and details about our Ecological Discovery Series and Camping Clinics.
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.
Issues. This page is a resource for information about the latest in roadless area conservation issues, summaries of important scientific articles, 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.
