Leave No Trace

On October 1-2, 2011, the Indian Waters Council held its first Leave No Trace (LNT) Trainer Certification course in more than a decade. LNT Master Educator and Council Advocate Bruce Cannon was the course director.  Other Trainers were Bob Cope, Bob Smith II, and Tripp Clark, all graduates of the first and only prior course in our council, held in 2001.  Twenty six Scouts and Scouters completed the course, including two Scouters from the Sequoyah Council in Tennessee.

A Google Group has been established for participants and staff to share resources and ideas, discuss workshops and opportunities, etc.  The address for the group is http://groups.google.com/group/iwc_lnt_trainers

BSA Resources for LNT can be found HERE.
