Leave No Trace Trainer Course
The Leave No Trace Trainer specializes in teaching Leave No Trace principals and the ways to implement these low impact skills. Leave No Trace is best understood as an educational and ethical program, not as a set of rules and regulations. Anyone attending this training will be considered a Leave No Trace trainer with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. The next course will be held on February 8 & February 9, 2020.
Position Specific Training
Position Specific Training (PST) is geared to the specific position a Scout volunteer holds (den leader, scoutmaster, etc.). The next Position Specific Training course will be announced soon.
