The Leave No Trace Awareness Workshop is the third level of training offered by Leave No Trace Australia. The workshop can range from a 30-minute presentation to a full-day event, with experiential-based training in an outdoor setting being encouraged.
These workshops are designed for a wide range of individuals, including educators, children, university students, Scouts, outdoor professionals, trails and conservation crews, recreation club members, and anyone interested in Leave No Trace skills and ethics. The workshop leader can be a Leave No Trace Master Educator, a Leave No Trace Trainer, or someone familiar with the Leave No Trace principles.
