eNews You Can Use - New Leave No Trace Training Resources

The Center has recently updated two useful training resources, which are now both available directly from the Center’s website, in the online store.

The first is an updated Leave No Trace Awareness Workshop Certificate (shown at left). While available for FREE as a download (PDF file) from the website, the Center is now offering printed color certificates on heavy paper stock for $1.00 each or $0.50 each when 50 or more are ordered at once.

Giving certificates to Awareness Workshop participant is a great way to recognize their participation in your Leave No Trace workshop. In addition, many attendees find the certificate useful for professional development. For more information on Awareness Workshops, please visit

The second new resource also available in the Leave No Trace online store is the updated Leave No Trace Trainer Course Participant Packet. The updated packet now includes the National Park Service/Leave No Trace DVD (shown at right). This 9-minute video is a great tool for any Leave No Trace training, educational session or outreach opportunity. Pre-assembled Trainer Course packets are an easy way to ensure that course participants have the minimum information they to get the most out of a Leave No Trace Trainer Course, and the DVD is an excellent addition.
