Master Educator Courses

Leave No Trace Master Educator Course

This course is being run by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC).

Our Master Educator course will take place on the A.T. in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This five-day course is designed for individuals who are actively teaching others backcountry skills or providing recreation information to the public. The overall goal of the course is to train educators and others in ways to practice and teach Leave No Trace skills and ethics. Through classroom discussions, lectures and a four-day camping trip, this course will cover the seven Leave No Trace Principles and discuss wildland ethics, as well as give the participants the tools and techniques for disseminating these low-impact skills to other users of backcountry lands. Participants could include a mixture of federal agency partners, educators, outdoor retailers, youth group and outing club leaders, and other individuals. Upon completion of the course, you will be qualified to teach Leave No Trace Trainer courses. The Leave No Trace Master Educator qualification is recognized and valued throughout the outdoor industry.
