Leave No Trace – Virtual Level 1 Instructor Course

Course Dates: February 12 – 14 (10:00 am – 1:00 pm MT)

Course Overview: Putting Leave No Trace into action in the outdoors is the best way to ensure a sustainable recreation future for our shared lands. Leave No Trace is for anyone and everyone who enjoys spending time outside. Whether you camp, hike, fish, mountain bike, picnic, hunt, backpack, ski, or climb, Leave No Trace training can conserve and protect the outdoor spaces you love.

Sawtooth Outdoor Education is pleased to offer the Virtual Leave No Trace Level 1 Instructor Course as part of our commitment to responsible outdoor recreation.

This course will allow each participant to learn the skills and techniques that minimize our individual but cumulative impacts on the outdoors. Additionally, this course will have a specific focus on the “why” behind each Leave No Trace Principle, as well as the science that informs the recommendations and guidelines. Lastly, this course will explore the concept of outdoor ethics in depth, and will guide participants in how such ethic can be shared with others in an effective and meaningful way.

This course is designed for anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors, and is especially well-suited for those who wish to teach others about Leave No Trace. This course involves 16 hours of instruction, involving approximately ten (10) hours of synchronous instruction (all course participants together via the Zoom online platform) and a minimum of six (6) hours of asynchronous instruction (self-directed learning offline).

This course is exceptionally well-suited for both domestic (US) and international participants! It eliminates the travel costs associated with in-person Level 1 Instructor Courses and can be taken anywhere there is a reliable internet connection.

This Leave No Trace Virtual Level 1 Instructor Course is not a 100% self-paced course. There are specific assignments with deadlines that must be completed on time in order to complete the course. Furthermore, full attendance and participation in all synchronous portions of the course is required for course completion. The synchronous portions of this course are designed to be interactive learning opportunities that fully engage all participants by using various online learning tools.
