Master Educator Courses

Leave No Trace Master Educator Course – Touch of Nature Environmental Center

The Master Educator course is an extensive experience designed to immerse participants in Leave No Trace skills and ethics through hands on practice and teaching. 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.

This course is a great opportunity for educators, naturalists, park rangers, recreation planners, scout leaders and anyone that works, or would like to work, in the outdoor industry.

Day one begins in an indoor classroom setting at Touch of Nature. Participants will be camping for the duration of the course at Rocky Ledges on the shore of Little Grassy Lake. Participants will be living, sleeping and eating in the outdoors, and will travel to a different location each day, and return to Rocky Ledges in the evening.

You will be responsible for providing your own tent (1 per person) and food/cooking supplies. You must provide your own food. When planning, please remember that all meals will be in the field and that lunches will at times be on the trail. Please plan accordingly.

Cost: $495
