Nevada Outdoor School is a Leave No Trace Youth Accredited Program!

Nevada Outdoor School is pleased to announce that it is now a Leave No Trace Youth Accredited Program! Leave No Trace the Center for Outdoor Ethics is a National organization that protects the outdoors by teaching and inspiring people to enjoy it responsibly. Last year, Nevada Outdoor School took the next step towards making our youth outdoor ethics programs even better, by participating in the Leave No Trace Youth Program Accreditation. The Youth Program Accreditation connects youth serving Organizations, like Nevada Outdoor School with essential standards and assessment resources, which will enhance the impacts of stewardship education for young people. There are 11 standards Set by Leave No Trace, which any accredited program must comply. During this process, Nevada Outdoor School has completed a variety of exercises and evaluations, including interviews with participants and staff, which have helped us to evaluate the effectiveness of our youth Leave No Trace education. Using the information gathered NOS has set goals and created action plans, which will guide us though the next year of creating even better programs. We are honored that Leave No Trace has approved Nevada Outdoor School as a fully Accredited Leave No Trace Youth Program. As a Fully accredited youth Program, Nevada Outdoor School demonstrates the highest commitment to providing youth in Nevada with relevant and accessible Leave No Trace education.
