October 27 -29 Lake Perris SRA


November 9-12 Mission Creek Preserve




Leave No Trace is a nationally recognized outdoor skills and ethics awareness program that teaches us how to treat the environment. The seven principles are guidelines to follow at all times and are an awareness of and attitude toward the land, rather than a rote set of rules.

The Master Educator course is an extensive five-day course on how to practice and teach Leave No Trace skills and ethics. Participants will gain a comprehensive overview of Leave No Trace techniques through practical application in a field setting. Graduates receive a diploma and are qualified to teach two-day Leave No Trace Trainer courses.

You will learn about:

• How to implement Leave No Trace in your outdoor program.

• How to properly present the Leave No Trace skills to others through

• Trainer and Awareness courses.

• What's new in Leave No Trace techniques and how they apply to the outdoor program.

Many other topics will be covered as well. Graduates will be fully trained in all aspects of the Leave No Trace program.

The course is a two-weekend course. The first weekend will be at Lake Perris SRA, October 27-29, 2017. The culmination of the course will be November 9-12, 2017 at Mission Creek Preserve. On the second weekend, the participants will have the option of going on a trek along the Pacific Crest Trail or participating in a non-trek option. All material will be covered in both options.

The course fee is $300.00, which covers food and materials. You will learn the proper techniques for Leave No Trace camping and have a great time!

Participants will need to supply their own camping equipment. An equipment list will be provided. This course does not teach camping skills. This course does teach how to minimize the impacts we make while recreating.

We will be in an outside environment for the course, rain or shine! Everyone attending will receive a Leave No Trace Master Educator Certificate, patch, written materials, and a thumb drive to take home. To reserve a spot, send a $100 deposit. Similar courses cost $450 - $850, so take advantage of this low price.

This course is open to all BSA registered Scouts, Venturers and Scouters at least 18 years old or older.

It is highly recommended that you have taken a Leave No Trace Trainer course before attending the course.
