Partners with TreadLightly has partnered with Tread Lightly!® to help promote appropriate land use. Established in 1985 by the US Forest Service, the Tread Lightly!® program was created to address concerns about land use impact from an ever increasing use base. In 1990, the program was transferred to the private sector as a non-political, non-profit to continue the mission of promoting responsible outdoor recreation.


What I value in this program is that it does not focus on allowing and promoting one user group with the exclusion of another. However, the organization does focus on mechanized users and their impact on the environment. The goal of Tread Lightly!® is for outdoor users to be stewards of the land we use though both restoration programs and education.

As mechanized users we need to recognize the impact that we can have on the lands we use. Through this understanding and stewardship we will be able limit our impact and maintain open access to the lands that we enjoy.

I highly recommend that you become a member of Tread Lightly!® and help spread the word.
