Leave No Trace Master Educator Course – National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS)

Photographer: Peggy Guiney

This Master Educator course is an extensive experience designed to train participants practicing and teaching Leave No Trace skills and ethics. The course provides participants with a comprehensive overview of Leave No Trace techniques through practical application in a frontcountry setting. Students who successfully graduate from this course will receive a certificate and will be qualified to offer and teach two-day Leave No Trace Trainer courses as well as shorter Awareness Workshops.

During five days of training at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, participants will learn and teach the principles of Leave No Trace while immersing themselves in the northern coniferous forest. Wolf Ridge provides an ideal setting for exploring and discussing outdoor ethics, frontcountry issues, and backcountry Leave No Trace principles. 

The course will involve practicing Leave No Trace skills while camping at a site along the Baptism River. Participants will also have opportunities to explore the 18 miles of trails, two lakes, wetlands, and scenic vistas of Lake Superior in the 2,000 acres owned by Wolf Ridge. 

This is a great opportunity for teachers, naturalists, park rangers, recreation planners, scout leaders, and other outdoor educators to improve Leave No Trace teaching skills while experiencing the unique treasures found in this scenic area of Minnesota.

Cost: $465
