The Council Outdoor Ethics Advocate serves as the local council's point person for facilitating Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly! training and similar outdoor ethics programs for BSA youth and adults.  This training enriches the Scouting experience for the members, reduces our impact on the land consistent with Scouting's historic message, and will help ensure the continuing access to public lands for Scouting purposes. If you have questions about our council's Outdoor Ethics program please contact the Outdoor Ethics Advocate by using the Interest Form.
