Burlington County Council would like to host Leave No Trace courses in the near future but before that can happen we need Scouters who are certified as LNT Trainers or Master Educators. If you are currently a certified LNT Trainer or Master Educator and would you would be willing to be an instructor for courses presented at the council and/or unit level, please contact the Council Training Chair, Rick Koretke, at Koretke@comcast.net with contact information, certification level and availability for training.

Until BCC can setup our own courses, the following courses are available out of council:


Course goal - Participants completing training will become card carrying Leave No Trace trainers, authorized to conduct LNT Guide, Awareness and Orientation classes for scout and non-scout groups as well as assist with LNT awards and co-teaching other classes. Participants will learn “in depth” the seven principles of Leave No Trace and will be able to lead others in an immersion style learning program involving these environmental and wildland ethics.

This is the course Youth need to take to become an “LNT Unit Trainer”.

WHEN – MARCH 2, 3, 4; 2012




Leave No Trace Master Educator is highest level of Leave No Trace training. Course begins with classroom training sessions followed by hands-on field experience. During field experience each participant will have opportunity to present a Leave No Trace topic that will be assigned to you weeks prior to course.
