Leave No Trace Trainer Course – Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK)

The Leave No Trace Trainer Course is hosted at ADK’s Education Yurt Village, located at 1002 Adirondack Loj Road, Lake Placid, NY 12946.  This two-day course assists participants in learning more about the seven principles of Leave No Trace and techniques for disseminating these low-impact skills.  Trainer Courses are designed for educators, guides, agency employees and other outdoor enthusiasts.  Successful graduates of the Trainer Course gain skills to teach Leave No Trace techniques and ethics to their clients, friends, and family.

Participants learn the framework of Leave No Trace and prepare to teach Leave No Trace curriculum in a variety of settings – such as schools, camps, parks, wilderness and front country areas.  Workshop topics include Wildland Ethics, the Authority of the Resource technique, and the seven principles of Leave No Trace.  This course will be a cooperative group camping experience with the shared responsibility of camp chores, cooking, and decision making while practicing Leave No Trace skills and ethics.  The trip will be led by two of ADK’s Education Department staff, who are Leave No Trace Master Educators, NYS Licensed Guides, and professional outdoor educators.
