2024 Leave No Trace Level 2 Instructor Course

Touch of Nature Outdoor Education Center • 1206 Touch of Nature Rd MakandaIL  62958 Organized by Touch of Nature Outdoor Education Center

About this event

The five-day Level 2 Instructor Course (previously known as the Master Educator Course), is Leave No Trace's most comprehensive education course. Participants are provided with in-depth training on Leave No Trace skills and ethics through practical application during a field-based course. Participants learn Leave No Trace techniques through various methods—including discussions, scenarios, demonstrations, and hands-on activities—throughout all five days of the field-based course. The Level 2 Instructor Course is also designed to prepare participants to be the best possible teachers of Leave No Trace regardless of setting. Level 2 Instructor Course graduates are certified to instruct Level 1 Instructor Courses and are prepared to teach Leave No Trace Skills Courses and Workshops. Day one begins in an indoor classroom setting at Touch of Nature with participants staying on-site the first night. Participants will be camping for the duration of the course at on-site unless the weather is extremely bad. Participants will be living, sleeping and eating in the outdoors, and will travel to a different location each day. You will be responsible for providing your own tent (1 per person). Participants will need to provide ALL of their own food. Touch of Nature will supply a space for cooking (on a camp-stove), and equipment if necessary. When planning, please remember that all meals, except the first day, will be in the field and that lunches will at times be on the trail. Please plan accordingly. For questions, please contact ton@siu.edu or 618-453-1122.
