Leave No Trace Level 1 Instructor Course – Juniata College

Dates: Saturday, August 10 to Sunday, August 11

The Leave No Trace Level 1 Instructor Course will meet at Juniata College’s Raystown Field Station. This two-day course is designed for educators, guides, agency employees, other outdoor professionals and anyone interested in learning more about minimum impact skills and ethics. Those who complete the course are equipped to: understand, demonstrate and teach state-of-the-art minimum impact techniques to students, friends, family or community groups; lead a discussion on outdoor ethics and help others explore their own personal outdoor ethic; serve as a co-instructor for Leave No Trace Level 1 Instructor Courses with a qualified Level 2 Instructor; teach Leave No Trace Skills Courses; and offer Leave No Trace Workshops. Participants will learn the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace, the role and function of a Leave No Trace instructor and the organization, and receive an overview of the national Leave No Trace program. The course includes 16 hours of experiential education, at least 10 of which will be outdoors. The trip will be led by two of RFS’s staff, who are Leave No Trace Level 2 Instructors and professional educators. Tent camping space and limited lodging is available but not required for an additional fee. Lunch will be provided on both days, and breakfast and dinner are on your own.

Cost: $150 (includes lunch both days, breakfast and dinner on your own). There is an additional fee of $25 for camping/lodging. Select the overnight course during registration to request lodging for Saturday evening.
