Learn to travel responsibly and sustainably in wild places. Within the rich ecosystems of our public lands, you will learn and teach the principles of Leave No Trace and discuss wildland ethics. Your course will begin in an indoor classroom where you will learn and discuss the history of the Leave No Trace program, receive an introduction to Leave No Trace principles and make final preparations for backcountry travel. Throughout the remaining days of the course, you will put your new skills into practice on a multi-day, sea kayak expedition in a stunning and remote natural environment. The sea kayaking route will follow the established Cascadia Marine Water Trail. Weather will be variable, with temperatures ranging from nighttime lows in the 30s to daytime highs in the 70s. Precipitation is possible any time of year.

In addition to hands-on practical application of skills, every student will hone their teaching style by presenting a 15- to 20-minute class on a Leave No Trace topic of their choice. Graduates of Leave No Trace Master Educator courses will have the skills to teach others about Leave No Trace. College credit is available for most NOLS Leave No Trace Master Educator courses.

Cost: $885
