Leave No Trace™ Courses
Adirondack Mountain Club is one of ten national providers of Leave No Trace Master Educator courses. ADK also provides Leave No Trace Trainer courses, as well as offering Leave No Trace Awareness Workshops.
Leave No Trace Trainer
The Trainer Course is a vital component of the nationwide Leave No Trace program. You will receive training in Leave No Trace skills and ethics in this two-day course. Trainer Courses assist participants in learning more about the seven principles of Leave No Trace and techniques for teaching these low impact skills to others. Overnight accommodations will be provided in a heated yurt at the Heart Lake Program Center.
Cost: $125 (Members receive 10% discount) ; includes instruction, meals, use of group gear.
Custom Leave No Trace Courses
If you have a group of at least 6 people who cannot attend a currently scheduled course, contact ADK about setting up a custom Master course. You pick the dates, location, and help set up logistics, and we’ll offer the course at a discounted rate to your group.
All courses consist of one classroom day and four days in the backcountry (not overly strenuous but requiring some experience and good health).
Successful completion of the Master Educator course qualifies you to offer and teach two-day Leave No Trace Trainer courses and Leave No Trace Awareness Workshops.
Course fee typically includes instruction, teaching materials, lifetime subscription to the Leave No Trace Tracker, one-year Leave No Trace individual membership, first night’s lodging, all meals, and group camping equipment. Pricing may be adjusted based on what’s provided by ADK and by the host organization.
