Earth Guardians focus on emerging issues that have the potential to impact the playa or our community and develop Leave No Trace (LNT) practices to reduce impacts.  Since 1998, we have been tailoring the national LNT principles and practices to Burning Man. In 2002, we began hosting a Leave No Trace Tour of Black Rock City during the event and identifying camps that exemplified the LNT ethic.  Over the years our volunteer teams have expanded and include everything from LNT outreach and MOOP train to support for our many speakers and bar.   Please check out our list of volunteer teams and decide what is best for you!

We now have shifts for the LNT Outreach/BLM Compliance team, the EG Information Desk, and Activities Support, the Alternative Energy Garden and Camp Operations (only EG Camp members) up on shiftboard so that you can sign up now, no waiting for the playa!  Shift sign-ups for other teams will be at the volunteer information desk at the Earth Guardian Pavilio
