This 5-day course is designed for individuals who are actively teaching others backcountry skills or providing recreation information to the public. Through classroom discussion, lectures, and a 4-day backpacking trip, participants will receive an in-depth and hands-on study of the seven principles and wildland ethics, and learn a variety of ways to share and disseminate low-impact recreation skills to other visitors.  

Cost: $630 for Appalachian Trail Conservancy members, $580 for A.T. Trail Club Members and Agency Partners and $700 for all others. Fee includes instruction, curriculum and teaching materials, a one year Leave No Trace individual membership.
