Description: 

This course is designed to provide senior Scouts, co-ed Venturers and/or community teenagers & adults the Leave No Trace Trainer training. Using the Leave No Trace and Outdoor Ethics message, participants will learn ‘hands-on’ how to plan and prepare for future trips by taking advantage of durable surfaces to camp and hike, properly disposing of waste, leaving what is found where it is found, minimizing the impacts of campfires, respecting wildlife, and respecting others who may travel the same path. Upon completion of the course, participants will be qualified as a Leave No Trace Trainer and empowered to teach Leave No Trace awareness courses to others of how and why to protect all precious front-country and back-country resources and to widely share the Leave No Trace message. The course is open to anyone aged 14 and above. Registration in the Scouting program is not required but non-Scouts will incur a higher participation fee.
