Honoring Black History Month: Green Camping

Black History Month, green camping In honor of Black History Month, this week we’ll be sharing excerpts of the new book Blacks Living Green: Small Smart Steps, written by Dr. Sharon T. Freeman with a foreword by Carl Pope, the Sierra Club’s executive director.

From the section called "Tips for Eco-Friendly Camping":

"While campfires are fun and comforting, remember to burn only fallen wood. Don't cut down branches from a living tree. Don't clear a new piece of ground to make a fire. Some campgrounds provide you with a place to build a fire. Look for previously cleared places and reuse those if possible."
