  • The Leave No Trace for Every Kid Curriculum
    Learn about the new Leave No Trace for Every Kid curriculum. Understand how the curriculum components interrelate to create the most robust Leave No Trace youth education and programming resource to date. Lastly, gain insight into the curriculum's rollout plan in the scouting community in 2017.
  • Leave No Trace in Every Park
    What would our shared public lands look like if every visitor was imbued with an outdoor ethic as part of their visit? Leave No Trace in Every Park aims to accomplish this by beginning at the source, the lands themselves. Learn more about the Center's efforts to ensure a Leave No Trace presence at every park, forest, and protected area across the country and how the BSA can play an integral role in this long term initiative.
