Step Outdoors believes in the value of Leave No Trace for outdoor enthusiasts as a set of ethics, not a set of rules. For that reason, our organization offers Trainer and Awareness Courses throughout the year and will schedule a training specifically for your group or organization based upon availability. See below for any upcoming offerings, or contact Stacy at 970.946.5001 or Info@StepOutdoorsColorado.com.
Leave No Trace is a set of seven principles that promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation – a common courtesy and hospitality to other visitors. Those principles are:
- Plan Ahead and Prepare
- Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
- Dispose of Waste Properly
- Leave What You Find
- Minimize Campfire Impacts
- Respect Wildlife
- Be Considerate of Other Visitors

Trainer Courses are informative, practical, hands-on and fun. You will learn skills and teaching techniques through lectures, skits and discussions in a spectacular outdoor setting. These courses are designed for people who actively teach others outdoor skills or provide recreation information to the public. Trainer Courses emphasize three components: low-impact camping skills, wildland ethics and outdoor teaching techniques.
Course Description: During the two days of these Leave No Trace Trainer Courses, participants will learn and teach the seven principles and discuss wildland ethics. These courses emphasize skills and techniques essential to minimum impact outdoor ethics and education. Each participant will be required to present a short (15-20 minute) class on one of the LNT principles or how it relates to a specific activity. These courses follow LNT training guidelines.
