MAINTENANCE

The Castleton Tower Preserve is protected for its scenic,

wildlife, and ecological values in addition to its

recreational value.

 

                       Take care of all this area’s conservation values.

Human use often leaves long-lasting impressions on the land.

Practice leave-no-trace camping.

Campfires on the ground sterilize the soil and can harm plants.

Do not have campfires.  Prevent fires which are not contained by a fire tray or stove.

Stone fire rings and collecting firewood on-site have a lasting negative impact on the environment.

Do not build campfire rings or burn wood from the preserve.

Off-road vehicles scar the landscape and disturb animals, plants, and other people.

No off-road vehicle use.

Camping in the parking lot can cause unsightly and unpleasant crowding.

Practice what you would like others to do.  Do not remove camper shells from trucks.  Do not bring camper trailers on-site.

Trash lasts a long time in the desert.

Pack out all of your trash.
