Leave No Trace Trainer Course
July 11 @ 9:00 AM - July 12 @ 4:00 PM$75
The effects of human impact on the environment are staggering. The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics is a national organization. Their mission is to to protect the outdoors by teaching and inspiring people to enjoy it responsibly.
North Star is offering a 2 day course that will teach you the seven principles of leave no trace, as well as introducing you to the mission of the center, and the importance of their mission. Over the two days we will dissect each of the seven principles. You will be responsible for delivering a 15 minute lesson on one of the principles.
Once you complete the course you will be eligible to teach LNT Awareness courses. Responsibility begins locally in our schools and communities.
We will meet at the North Star base in Unity Maine. From there we will explore the Hills to Sea trail and paddle on Freedom Pond. At night we will camp on a small island on Freedom Pond.
You will need to bring food for lunch a potluck dish to share for dinner, clothes appropriate for the season, a sense of humor and a love of the natural world.
