NOS is proud to be a Leave No Trace Accredited Youth Program!
Our Leave No Trace Mission Statement:
Nevada Outdoor School (NOS) is the premier provider of outdoor ethics education in rural Nevada. We work hard every day through all our programs to inspire people to get outside, learn about, and build connections to the natural world in safe and responsible ways. It is important to us that our outdoor spaces stay healthy and preserved so that they can continue to be enjoyed in the future. It is for this reason that Nevada Outdoor School strives to connect our participants to Nature and ultimately instill a responsible outdoor ethic through Leave No Trace. We whole-heartedly promote Leave No Trace principles on all our youth, training and community programs. After attending a NOS program, our goal is for participants to leave with a love of and appreciation for the outdoors and a desire to be active stewards of the land. We want everyone to leave our programs with the motivation, knowledge, and skills to both individually practice responsible recreation and Leave No Trace principles and to share that knowledge with others.
