Leave No Trace - Trainer Certificate Course

Outdoor UW & Hoofers
Saturday, April 23
All Day Cancelled
Memorial Union | Mendota Lodge
Course Price: $50 (Hoofer Member) $70 (Non Member)
This is a 2-day and 1-overnight training/camping course.

This LNT Trainer Certification Course requires all participants to “camp out” in tents overnight to demonstrate low-impact camping techniques. The focus is on the LNT principles and less on “how to camp”, therefore, it is recommended that participants have some knowledge of camping (even if this is classroom-based). As part of the course, participants will also be asked to teach, educate, and evaluate each other in one of the 7 LNT Principles. The cost of this course includes 3 simple “camp” meals, snacks, and LNT materials. This course is a combination of indoor and outdoor lecture/discussion, practical application, and reflection on your own developing ethic when it comes to the Leave No Trace curriculum. Please bring any basic camping equipment that you have and want to use as well as your own personal gear (clothing, toilettes, etc). We will provide all “group gear” (tents, stoves, etc). As we get closer to the course we will reach out and see what additional gear people may need to borrow for the overnight camp (such as sleeping bag, pads, etc). Topics covered on this course include:

  • The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace
  • The history of land conservation and public wilderness protection in the U.S. 
  • Individual learning styles 
  • Outdoor teaching techniques 
  • The authority of the resource 
  • Reflections on your own personal LNT ethics.
