BLM-WO, Leave No Trace Traveling Trainer Program: Description of Program and/or Project

Background: The BLM has partnered with the Leave No Trace Center for over 20 years to provide stewardship programs and outdoor ethics education to BLM visitors and BLM staff. Together, BLM and Leave No Trace have provided outreach and outdoor ethics education to thousands of visitors on BLM lands at recreation sites, through signage and print media and through education programs offered to visitors and BLM staff. As a result, BLM visitors and staff have been exposed to responsible recreation practices, outdoor ethics education information and have learned how to practice minimal impact principles that supports the long-term integrity of the BLM lands and resources and builds stewardship of public lands.

Objectives: The mission of the Stewardship and Outdoor Ethics Education Program is to build appreciation and ¿ownership¿ of the public lands by fostering a connection between people and the land through outdoor experiences, education, and volunteerism. The BLM relies on partners and volunteers to help fulfill the Stewardship Program¿s mission. One of the BLM¿s long-standing partners, Leave No Trace helps the agency promote stewardship and teach outdoor ethics and responsible recreation to the public and BLM staff.

Public Benefit: Through this outreach opportunity public land visitors will learn how to practice Leave No Trace principles and will be educated in the importance of their responsibility of having best practices in outdoor ethics while recreating on public lands.
