Can I teach Leave No Trace if I don't have any formal Leave No Trace training?

Yes, with the exception of Leave No Trace Trainer and Master Educator Courses. While formal training in Leave No Trace can greatly enhance ones understanding of the skills and ethics associated with the Leave No Trace program, no formal training is necessary to teach others about Leave No Trace, particularly at the Leave No Trace Awareness Workshop level. Per the Leave No Trace Awareness Workshop Guidelines, individuals who are familiar with Leave No Trace but have received no formal Leave No Trace training are encouraged to conduct Awareness Workshops, which are Leave No Trace trainings that are one-day or shorter in length. There are numerous teaching resources available and individuals are encouraged to use these resources to provide Leave No Trace information to: church groups, youth groups, outing clubs, family, friends and anyone else interested in enjoying the outdoors responsibly.
