Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace is an international program that aims to reduce environmental impacts. Walton County Municipal Code, Chapter 22 -- Waterways and Beach Activities supports this program by requiring personal items be removed from the beach each night. Personal articles that are found abandoned on the beach one hour after dusk and one hour after sunrise will be removed which helps to protect South Walton’s rare and endangered sea turtles that nest on our beaches annually May through October. This will ensure our beaches are kept safe, clean and free of obstructions.

Leave No Trace is monitored by the Walton County TDC through Beach Operations Code Enforcement. 

Personal articles left on the beach in South Walton one hour after sunset and before one hour after sunrise will be removed.
