Overview

Leave No Trace is a national and international program designed to assist outdoor enthusiasts with their decisions about how to reduce their impacts when they hike, camp, picnic, snowshoe, run, bike, hunt, paddle, ride horses, fish, ski, or climb. The program strives to educate all those who enjoy the outdoors about the nature of their recreational impacts as well as techniques to prevent and minimize such impacts. Leave No Trace is best understood as an educational and ethical program, not as a set of rules and regulations. Nine out of ten people who visit the outdoors are uniformed about minimizing their impacts. Leave No Trace training is helping to instill an outdoor ethic in all those how enjoy spending time outside. Using the unique online alternative format developed by the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, this LNT Trainer Course will give participants LNT skills and ethics as well as techniques for effectively sharing these low impact practices with students of all ages. This course is ideal for outdoor leaders who take people of all ages outdoors for single or multi-day courses. Participants will prepare a lesson to teach virtually during the course (topics organized by the instructor). A heavy focus on teaching and learning as well as wildland ethics will be incorporated into this virtual training. Participants will receive LNT Trainer credentials and will have the tools they need to offer LNT Awareness Courses and teach Leave No Trace widely. Participants should prepare to complete about 10 hours of online course meetings via Zoom and about 10 hours of additional course pre-work and homework. However, please note that this course is not fully 'at your own pace, on your own'. There will be specific assignment deadlines, synchronous online meetings/classes, and lots of asynchronous on-your-own activities/readings. The virtual portions of this course will take place from 5 - 9pm on Thursday and Friday evening.
