WeConservePA plans to offer a two-day Leave No Trace trainer course in partnership with instructors from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy this fall. We seek an organization to host this training on two consecutive days during the week of September 12. Participants in the two-day trainer course will learn Leave No Trace skills and ethics as well as techniques for educating others about these low impact practices. Graduates of a trainer course are prepared to offer Leave No Trace Awareness workshops to their own community. Host organizations will receive host credit in communications around the event, as well as 1 complimentary registration.

  • Availability on two consecutive days between Monday, September 12 and Saturday, September 17

    o Access to a projector, screen, and whiteboard preferred.

    o Access to a trail is preferred, but not a requirement.
