Welcome to Tread Lightly NEJeep
« on: October 15, 2004, 07:57:22 AM »

I would like to welcome Tread Lightly's newest member, Northeast Jeep Organization.  This is something that everyone here at NEJeep believes is a vital role and position when it comes to off highway use.  We strongly support the cause and do so as they do, by proper education.  Please keep a close eye on upcoming training events and seminars.

Who is Tread Lightly


 Tread Lightly  is a nonprofit organization whose mission is To empower generations to enjoy the outdoors responsibly through education and restoration.  While its mission incorporates all forms of outdoor recreation, Tread Lightly?'s core focus is the ethical use of motorized and mechanized vehicles on both land and water.

 In 1985, the US Forest Service launched the Tread Lightly program as a means of addressing concerns about the impacts from increasing numbers of visitors to the great outdoors for recreational purposes.  In 1990, to maximize the program's effectiveness, management responsibilities were transferred to the private sector, making Tread Lightly an apolitical, not-for-profit organization.


 Tread Lightly is funded by donations from individual members, corporations, dealerships, clubs, retailers and other organizations interested in spreading the message of responsible and ethical use of the outdoors.  Federal Partners include the National Park Service, Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, and Army Corps of Engineers.


What does Tread Lightly Do?


Tread Lightly focuses its programs and efforts in education and restoration to further the goals of responsible and ethical recreation.  

 Current programs include Tread Trainer a training course designed to produce instructors of the Tread Lightly ethic, deemed Master Trainers.  Restoration for Recreation is another important element of Tread Lightly that aims to construct, enhance or restore recreational sites across the country.  The organization also produces a multitude of educational pieces for outdoor enthusiasts, hunting educators, advertising agencies, the government and children of all ages.

 Tread Lightly is thus an ethical and educational force in bringing together and unifying a broad spectrum of stakeholders including agencies, industry, media, conservation and enthusiast groups, and concerned individuals who share a common goal -- to find a balance between humans and nature.
