In an effort to streamline communication throughout the Great Salt Lake Council, a single roundtable flyer or brochure will be produced to showcase upcoming events and provide important information about things happening in our council. This web page is “digital version” of that flyer in that it showcases everything highlighted in the roundtable flyer. You will also be able to download & print the latest version of the flyer to share with fellow Scouters who were not able to attend roundtable.

Leave No Trace Training
The BSA-LNT 101 course is designed to give Scouts & Scouters the training they need to successfully practice Leave No Trace on their outings. Leave No Trace is important as we strive to live by the Outdoor Code, Follow the Scout Oath & Law, protect nature, and leave a good impression with others. This course is for all Scouts & Scouters age 11+. Cost is $10.00 to cover all materials you will receive.
Master Educator Course
This internationally-recognized course is the top tier of Leave No Trace training and provides participants with an in-depth look at the skills and ethics of Leave No Trace. In addition to practical applications of Leave No Trace in the field, participants will also learn about various teaching styles and effective communication techniques. Graduates are qualified to teach Leave no Trace Trainer Courses, Awareness Courses, and teach at other venues.
Trek Option: Needs a minimum of 6 participants to run. Participants will join the non-trek course for 2 days and then have the opportunity to take a short backpacking trip into the High Uintas Wilderness for the field experience portion of their training.
Non-Trek Option: Need a minimum of 6 participants to open. Participants will be combined with the Trek course for 2 days and then camp in a primitive area for their field experience. This option does not require hiking.
Both options MUST fill if each one is to run. The default is non-trek if not enough people sign up for the trek option.
