Description: The Potomac Appalachian Trail Club’s Trail Patrol is offering this two-day, low-mileage backpacking format course designed to enhance your understanding of Leave No Trace practices and ethics and to increase your level of expertise and confidence in teaching Leave No Trace skills. Through focused activities, hands-on field experience and both formal and informal discussions, you will be introduced to concepts and methods that will advance your knowledge of Leave No Trace issues, expand your repertoire of low-impact skills and increase your effectiveness in teaching these important skills to others. Participants should be experienced campers or backpackers. Instruction will concentrate on the incorporation of low impact techniques in camping and backpacking settings, but we will not be teaching basic camping skills. This is a fun course where all participants have a part in demonstrating the choices that can be made to minimize our impact on the land and our resources. 
On completion of this course, participants will be registered as Leave No Trace Trainers with the national Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics and will receive a certificate of course completion as well as their Leave No Trace Trainer lapel pin.

Dates: Sat. Sept. 14, 7am  – Sun. Sept. 15, 4pm
Location: Shenandoah National Park
Cost: $60.00 for PATC Members, $80.00 for Non-PATC members. Join PATC at the time of registration and get the member price! The cost covers course materials and meals with the exception of lunch for Saturday and Sunday, which the participant should bring. 
Course Size: Limited to 8 participants. Register early!
Participants must be 18 years or older.
