Leave No Trace Trainer Courses

Leave No Trace 

The Leave No Trace principles might seem unimportant until you consider the combined effects of millions of outdoor visitors. One poorly located campsite or campfire may have little significance, but thousands of such instances seriously degrade the outdoor experience for all. Leaving no trace is everyone's responsibility. This course provides training for those who wish to impart the principles to others.


The Organisation

Leave No Trace Ireland is a non – profit making organization, who are dedicated to promoting and inspiring responsible outdoor outdoor recreation through education and research.
