Leave No Trace Trainer & OE Guide Course - May 1-3, 2020
Please see attachment for Online Alternative Course
Leave No Trace is an educational, non-profit movement dedicated to the responsible enjoyment and active stewardship of the outdoors by all people, worldwide. The Leave No Trace concept is one that crosses all boundaries of the recreation spectrum and is applicable for anyone who enjoys spending time in the out-of-doors. The idea is simple – leave the places you enjoy as good as or better than you found them. Both skills and ethics are involved, as well as good decision-making. If people do something, even something simple, to help take care of the recreational resources they cherish, we will all benefit. Cleaner water, less campfire impacts, fewer negative encounters with wildlife, less damage/loss of cultural and historic artifacts are just a few of the benefits of adhering to Leave No Trace.

This course will allow participants to learn and practice the 7 principles of Leave No Trace. This course will also focus on the effective presentation of these principles. The course will pivot between both classroom and outdoor experiences and presentations. Participants will learn both front country and back country information.
