Course Overview: Putting Leave No Trace into action in the outdoors is the best way to ensure a sustainable recreation future for our shared lands. Leave No Trace is for anyone and everyone who enjoys spending time outside. Wild Alabama is a proud partner and provider of Level One Instructor Courses. This course is appropriate for anyone who wants a full immersion in the ethics and is perfect for recreational leaders, scout leaders, and youth group leaders. Anyone who takes groups into an outdoor setting to perform outdoor activities from hiking to rock climbing will benefit from this course. This is also a perfect fit for land managers or people in leadership positions in state parks, nature preserves or private land where the general public is allowed to recreate.

This course will allow each participant to learn the skills and techniques that minimize our individual but cumulative impacts on the outdoors. Additionally, this course will have a specific focus on the “why” behind each Leave No Trace Principle, as well as the science that informs the recommendations and guidelines. Lastly, this course will explore the concept of outdoor ethics in depth, and will guide participants in how such ethics can be shared with others in an effective and meaningful way.

This course contains 16 hours of experiential instruction. It includes 10 hours of synchronous instruction (all participants are together via an online platform) and 6 hours of self-directed learning offline. This ensures a meaningful and effective experience for all participants. When you register for this course, you will receive, via email, all further instructions.
