The end of June marked the successful completion of 4 LNT Master Educator Courses for the AMC. With three courses left in the 2011 field season it is not to late to sign up for a Master Course.
In April, May and June we ran courses in the Berkshires, MA and in the White Mountains, NH. Each course brought together quality individuals of various backgrounds interested in developing their outdoor ethics and sharing that with others in their careers or personal lives.
Over the course of the 5 day Master Educator Course we focus on
developing the skills to teach Leave No Trace and the 7 principles. Course participants are already proficient in the outdoors as this course focuses on teaching LNT, not basic backcountry travel. Students present lessons throughout the week, consistent and constructive feedback on teaching development is given, there are daily discussion topics, and activities to help the students develop a plan to put this
training to use after the course.
Looking ahead, here is the list of AMC - LNT Master Educator Courses taking place in July, August, and September:
Backpacking course in the White Mountains, NH
Backpacking course in the Delaware Water Gap, NJ
Canoeing course on Lake Umbagog, NH
