Leave No Trace Master Educators Course

The BSA Leave No Trace Master Educator Course provides participants with comprehensive training in Leave No Trace skills and ethics, instruction and practice on effective teaching methods, and information on the important role of outdoor ethics in scouting’s outdoor programs. Through a cooperative agreement with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, this valuable training is recognized throughout the world by the outdoors industry, land management agencies, and the outdoor recreation community.

This 5-day course features a day of classroom instruction at the Summit, 3 days and nights of immersive practical application on a wilderness whitewater (Class I-II) trek on the Upper New River and a final day of instruction back at the Summit. All food, housing, class materials, and group gear will be provided by the Summit Bechtel Reserve. Participants will be required to provide the personal gear that is required on a Summit New River trek
 
A major goal for this course is to graduate effective and active Leave No Trace Master Educators who will return to their home councils and conduct the key Leave No Trace Trainer courses needed to support their unit, district and council outdoor programs. Course graduates will be able to teach Leave No Trace Trainer courses, BSA Leave No Trace 101 classes, and general Leave No Trace Awareness Workshops.
All food, housing, class materials, and group gear will be provided by the Summit Bechtel Reserve. Participants will be required to provide personal gear that is required on a Summit New River trek.
