Tread Lightly! wrote:As part of both the "Educate Yourself" and "Do Your Part" principles, this week I am encouraging everyone to take a small amount of time out of your evening and complete our Online Awareness Course.

This online activity covers the basics of the Tread Lightly! principles and is a wonderful way to quiz your knowledge of what responsible recreation means to us as a community.

Enjoy:

I used to (and still do) practice this initiative when I was in scouting, but it was called Leave No Trace. I wholeheartedly believe that we need to leave little or no impact when we go camping or wheeling. Its not just an environmental concern, but a matter of being responsible for our actions and how they may affect future visitors or developments in the area.

Its the idiots who take it all for granted that got ORV's branded as being naturally destructive. I really hope to change that mindset by making sure I leave the camping or wheeling area as good, if not better, than I found it.
