Trainer courses are tailored for educators, guides, agency employees, and other outdoor professionals. Successful graduates of the Trainer Course gain the skills to teach Leave No Trace techniques and ethics to their clients, friends and family.
The Teams have learned the concepts of Leave No Trace and are now prepared to teach the Leave No Trace curriculum in a variety of settings-schools, camps, parks, wilderness and front country areas. Workshop topics included the underlying ethics and seven principles of Leave No Trace:
Other topics included: History of Leave No Trace, Principles of Education, Wildland Ethics, & " “Authority of the Resource” ".
Through focused activities, hands-on field experience and both formal and informal discussions, the teams advanced their knowledge of Leave No Trace issues, expanded their repertoire of low-impact skills, and learned skills that will increase effectiveness in teaching these important skills to others.
This was a fun course where all participants had a part in demonstrating the choices that can be made to minimize our impact on the land and our resources. All members are now registered as Leave No Trace Trainers with the national Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics and have received a certificate of course completion as well as their Leave No Trace Trainer lapel pin.
