Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers

Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers lead trainings, workshops, and outreach programs from coast to coast focused on protecting and enjoying the outdoors responsibly.

The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers serve as the mobile education arm of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, fulfilling this role since 1999 thanks to support from Subaru of America and other partners. The four teams of two educators conduct hands-on educational trainings, workshops, and outreach programs for adults and children of all ages and backgrounds.

Traveling Trainer educational programs range from thirty-minute workshops to two-day intensive, field-based courses in all environments. Additionally, the teams conduct Hot Spots, targeted multi-day projects around the country at sites experiencing severe impacts and needing specialized solutions.

Awareness Workshops

An Awareness Workshop is any formal Leave No Trace presentation that is one-day or less in length. Participants receive engaging, introductory training in Leave No Trace skills and ethics. We require a minimum group size of 12 participants for Awareness Workshops.

Outreach Events

The teams set up their 10×10 booth display with Leave No Trace educational materials, interactive activities, and information on how to get more involved with Leave No Trace. This type of outreach is ideal for outdoor festivals, races, expos, and other forward-facing opportunities.

Trainer Courses

The Leave No Trace Trainer Course is a two-day, interactive workshop conducted in an outdoor setting. Trainer Courses are fee-based. The minimum number of participants is 5; the maximum is 12.

Please Note

In the past, the “request-a-visit” link/form was designed for requesting a program offered by the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers. Due to work on the Leave No Trace in Every Park and Leave No Trace for Every Kid initiatives, our Traveling Trainers have very limited capacity for additional events and their schedules fill up far in advance. We still welcome your request, but please note that it will be evaluated to see if it aligns with the scheduling, availability, and priorities of our broader network of educators, including the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers, State Advocates, Chapters, and local volunteers and partners.
