Volunteers play a critical role in helping to protect the outdoors through the spread of Leave No Trace skills and ethics. These dedicated individuals drive the Leave No Trace movement through trainings, outreach events and service projects.

In the fall of 2019, Leave No Trace and REI are teaming with local partners to create large-scale cleanup events. Each of the eight featured events will host 100+ volunteers — we’ll work together to remove litter, restore natural qualities and learn essential skills for protecting the environment.
