Leave No Trace

 LNT Trainer Patch
Leave No Trace Trainer Course

April 6-7, 2018

Leave No Trace Trainers are needed at every level in Scouting. Cub Scout Packs especially can benefit from the information provided by Trainers to help them make ethical outdoor choices early-on. ALL units need adult leaders to oversee the youth's implementation of the Leave No Trace principles.

Scouts aged 14 years or older, or who rank at First Class, can attend this training at the recommendation of their Unit leader. This training prepares them for both teaching and implementing Leave No Trace principles within their Unit. This 'Youth Leadership Position' meets advancement requirements for leadership within the Unit.
