Program Descriptions


Trainer Courses:

Leave No Trace Trainer Courses are two-day trainings put on in an outdoor setting. Trainer courses are designed to help you better understand and teach Leave No Trace skills and ethics. Upon successful completion of the Trainer Course, participants will receive a Leave No Trace Trainer Certificate. The goal of the Leave No Trace Trainer Course is to promote, inspire and teach Leave No Trace outdoor skills to outdoor professionals, public agency personnel, members of private businesses, and organizations who are likewise committed to promoting outdoor ethics. Perfect for educators and guides, this course is designed in a train-the-trainer format whereby successful course participants will learn to teach the Leave No Trace principles to clients, customers, or peers. The cost per participant for a Trainer Course facilitated by the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers is $100 for courses hosted by Leave No Trace Partners and $125 for courses hosted by non-partners.



Awareness Workshops:


Adult/Leader Workshops - The teams facilitate free experiential-based training programs that will focus on the elements of the Leave No Trace minimum impact program. This session will highlight the Leave No Trace outdoor skills and ethics program, which is applicable to all outdoor enthusiasts and all environments. In addition to learning the hows and whys behind the importance of practicing Leave No Trace, participants will be provided with information on how to easily and effectively integrate Leave No Trace into their daily lives and programs. Program length depends on the needs of the audience, but it ranges from one hour to a half-day.  All Awareness Workshops conducted by the Traveling Trainers are catered to the audience at hand.



PEAK (Promoting Environmental Awareness in Kids) Programs - Youth serving organizations often provide kids with memorable, early outdoor experiences.  PEAK Programs offered by the Traveling Trainers are designed to introduce kids to the outdoors and pique their interest in outdoor recreation and stewardship. The teams visit students, youth groups and summer camps to teach youth of all ages how to Leave No Trace through games, activities, and slideshows.




Outreach Events:

The teams travel with a ready to go 10x10 pop up display with free education materials, activities that align with the Leave No Trace Seven Principles, and information on ways people can get more involved with Leave No Trace. Additionally, they travel in an eye-catching wrapped Subaru vehicle that they can pull up next to their booth, if the space allowed. All booth outreach events conducted by the Traveling Trainers are free.

Different ways we have activated:

Trailhead Greetings - The Traveling Trainers greet outdoor enthusiasts at popular trailheads and talk with them about Leave No Trace and the special concerns about the area they're enjoying. The teams hand out free information and encourage visitors to practice Leave No Trace while on the trail.




Walk-by and Expo/Conference and Festival Programs - Individuals visit the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers at consumer trade shows, conferences and festivals.  The Team sets up an information booth with free Leave No Trace education materials, curriculum information, and information on the organization and program as a whole.  Dedicated training sessions can also be scheduled during this type of outreach.
