To earn the Venturing Ranger award, a young man or woman must complete eight core requirements and four electives. One of the core requirements is Leave No Trace.
By completing the Venturing Ranger Award requirements for Leave No Trace, a Venturer must learn the principles of Leave No Trace (LNT), practice those principles, and help others learn the principles. The LNT principles encourage those using outdoor resources to use them wisely and responsibly so others can also enjoy them.
