This course is a must for anyone wanting to work, educate or recreate in the outdoors. Learn how to identify impacts, and simple ways you can avoid them while still enjoying the backcountry.
In partnership with the landowner, this course offers students a unique opportunity to get "hands-on" and apply their personal outdoor ethic in a transitional landscape, ranging from pristine old-growth timber to hidden caves to heavily-impacted riparian areas. Students will gain an understanding of Leave No Trace in relation to differing user groups with potentially conflicting interests. New Trainers will also examine various teaching and learning styles, methods for teaching Leave No Trace to varying audiences, and resources to help present the LNT message in their future endeavors.
The course will consist of 1/2 day classroom instruction followed by 1/2 day hike, and a full day of hiking and presenting on Sunday. Students will teach a LNT-related principle to the rest of the group on Sunday. Upon completion, students will recieve a Trainer Certificate from the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics in Boulder, CO.
Course consists of moderate hiking, and personal hiking gear is required. Please email with any questions, and visit http://www.pikespeakleavenotrace.org/Upcoming_Events.html for more info!
