It’s not too late to register for the 5-Day Leave No Trace
Master Educator Course running on September 17-21, 2012 – Canoeing on Lake
Lake Umbagog in New Hampshire’s
northern forest provides some of the most serine canoe-camping in the northeast.
The lake runs more than 11 miles north to south. Its surface area is 7,850
acres making it the largest lake along the Maine/New Hampshire border.
Participants should be in good physical condition and be able to paddle for 2-5
miles per day and carry a canoe with
a partner. Each night we will camp at
designated, managed campsites, all within Lake Umbagog State Park.
This five-day course is designed for individuals who are actively teaching
others backcountry skills or providing recreation information to the public.
Through classroom discussions, lectures and a four-day canoe trip, this course
will cover the seven Leave No Trace principles and discuss wildland ethics, as
well as give the participants the tools and techniques for disseminating these
low-impact skills to other users of the backcountry. Participants could include a mixture of
federal agency partners, educators, outdoor retailers, youth group and outing
club leaders, and other individuals. Upon completion of the course, you will be
qualified to teach Leave No Trace Trainer courses. The Leave No Trace Master Educator
qualification is recognized and valued throughout the outdoor industry.
