Leave No Trace Trainer Course
Join us to learn about the unintended but significant impacts humans can have on parks and public lands — and how to minimize them. Leave No Trace teaches people of all ages how to enjoy the outdoors responsibly, ensure the long-term health of our wild spaces and educate others. Join Yosemite’s first Leave No Trace master for a one-night backpacking trek not far from Yosemite Valley. As you hike and camp in a stunning setting, you’ll get to discuss and share Leave No Trace practices for trip planning, cooking, disposing of waste and more. Successful participants will become a Leave No Trace trainers, ready to model best practices and train others in minimum-footprint outdoor fun.
Participants supply their own food and backpacking equipment. We will supply a park entry pass and Wilderness permit, front-country campsites in Yosemite Valley for Wednesday and Friday nights, and a bear-proof food canister.
