Green Guide to the uplands

Posted by Catherine Flitcroft on 09/01/2009

This booklet contains essential information on the mountain environment and how BMC members can do their best to care for the fragile upland landscape.

It contains general information on access, conservation, hill walking, climbing, scrambling and winter mountaineering as well as more detailed advice on sanitation, transport, camping and sustainable crag use, referring to good practice for groups visiting the crag.

It is hoped that this booklet will be widely used by all those visiting the outdoors. The Green Guide to the Uplands offers a concise explanation of the issues affecting the mountain environment and offers some advice as to how each one of us can be part of the solution and reduce our impact.

Download a free Green Guide to the Uplands (pdf).

The BMC has a strong environmental ethic and this Green Guide is the third in a series.
