Glacier Country Tourism, Glacier National Park, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, Flathead National Forest, Montana Office of Tourism, Discover Kalispell and Explore Whitefish have launched “Recreate Responsibly,” a nationwide initiative that guides and informs those recreating in our state to be good stewards of Montana’s people, culture and land. The campaign targets visitors, residents and businesses, providing education and tools for best practices on how to minimize impact, leave no trace, know before you go, prevent wildland fires, stop aquatic invasive species, and travel safely.
Building upon messaging from the Recreate Responsibly.org , Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, and Tread Lightly, the comprehensive campaign includes resources available to businesses throughout the state as well as marketing and messaging targeted at travelers and recreators.
Our messaging has two audiences—consumers and Montana business partners. Consumer messaging builds upon standard Recreate Responsibly principles by explaining what those principles are and how to apply them. Partner messaging is encouraging businesses to join this initiative by integrating elements of the RRMT program into their business practices, marketing and interactions. For those who would like to become an official Recreate Responsibly Business Partner, we created an official business partner certification program.
Additionally, The Montana Office of Tourism created a toolkit of resources available to businesses statewide, or order free recreate responsibly materials our official partners have printed for distribution.
