Leave No Trace Trainer Class
Salt Springs Reservoir (Mokelumne Wilderness)
Backpack Outing 2-day
Learn through experience how to share the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace during this two day training taught by Tom Banks, Master Trainer of Leave No Trace and longtime wilderness ranger for the U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service. We will teach each other backcountry Leave No Trace hiking and camping skills during an easy overnight backpacking trip; our location is tentatively set at Salt Springs Reservoir within the Mokelumne Wilderness which is about 35 miles from Pioneer, CA. Our first day we will hike about 2.5 miles to our campsite, “500 Dollar Camp” which will be our classroom for the 2 days. Our hike out will be the same way on the 2nd day. Participants will need to provide their own food and camping equipment and have a basic knowledge of how to backpack. Cost for the training will be $50 per participant. More information will be sent by email in early May. There are only 6 spots available for this training so register early!
