Description: 

The Leave No Trace Trainer Course is an informative, practical & fun workshop on the ethics and practices of minimum-impact recreation and travel. Prairielands Council is offering this weekend course designed to enhance your understanding of LNT principles and ethics and to increase your level of confidence in teaching Leave No Trace skills. Through focused activities, hands-on field experience and both formal and informal discussions, you will be introduced to concepts and methods that will advance your knowledge of Leave No Trace issues, expand your repertoire of low-impact skills and increase your effectiveness in teaching these important skills to others. The course is designed for any Scout leaders and Scouts/Venturers (14+) interested in Leave No Trace practices. This training will make you eligible to hold the status of Leave No Trace Trainer with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. Additionally, it offers Scouts the training needed for the position of Outdoor Ethics Guide in their unit. After successfully completing the course, participants will be able to teach Awareness Workshops and co-lead Trainer courses with a Leave No Trace Master Educator.
