Leave No Trace

Designed for outdoors enthusiasts and professionals alike, the Leave No Trace program is built to help people make good decisions about their impact on our planet. LNT teaches us how to minimize our footprint in the backcountry and the front country. Whether you are a hiker, paddler, family camper, or an backcountry guide, these courses will help you built the decision-making skills you need to reduce your impact on the environment.


The LNT program is based on the following 7 principles:

  1. Plan ahead and Prepare
  2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
  3. Dispose of Waste Properly
  4. Leave What You Find
  5. Minimize Campfire Impacts
  6. Respect Wildlife
  7. Be Considerate of Others


PaddleFoot and WSS are proud to be authorized providers for Leave No Trace Canada. Each of our courses offer the opportunity to push further your knowledge of the understanding of your impact in the backcountry and at the Trainer and Master Educator Level to teach it while leading out in the backcountry.
