THIS TRAINING HAS BEEN CANCELED AT THIS TIME IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CDC AND COUNCIL SAFETY COMMITTEE'S RECOMMENDATIONS FOR GROUP MEETINGS.

 

Participants in the two-day Leave No Trace Trainer Course learn Leave No Trace skills and ethics as well as techniques for effectively sharing these low impact practices. Research has shown that this course significantly improves participant knowledge and understanding of how Leave No Trace protects the outdoor places we love. This 16-hour overnight course trains adults and youth ages 14 and up to serve as Leave No Trace Trainers. It is recommended training for the Outdoor Ethics Guide troop junior leadership position.

This course is also highly recommended for summer camp staff and members of the council and district outdoor program and training teams.
