The Tread Trainer program is designed to train participants in innovative, practical methods of spreading outdoor ethics to the public with a curriculum specifically focused on motorized and mechanized recreation. Why it works? The course is packed with opportunities to practice different communication techniques, to discuss issues facing outdoor recreation and to network with like minded individuals who want to promote responsible recreation. 

Completing the one-day Tread Trainer course will qualify the participant to become a Tread Lightly! representative—a Tread Trainer.  Once a participant becomes a Tread Trainer, he or she is equipped to present the Tread Lightly! message to other educators, clubs, employees, visitors, enthusiasts or community members. The program was created as a mechanism to disseminate the Tread Lightly! message of responsible recreation through volunteerism.


Trainers receive 100-page manual, 2 Tread Lightly! PowerPoint presentations and other materials on a thumb drive, certificate of completion, set of tips and guides for responsible recreation, "On the Right Trail" video, and a limited supply of Tread Lightly! tip brochures and Tread Lightly! hang tags for presentations. 

Trainers also receive improvements in presentation skills, networking opportunities with other agencies/organizations at the course, expertise in Tread Lightly! ethics and ways to minimize outdoor impacts when recreating, use of the display upon request, updates through a semi-annual newsletter, emails and website.

The key to a successful workshop is to have participants that are familiar with Tread Lightly!, involved in community outreach or recreational training programs, or are interested in developing a higher awareness and competency on responsible recreation ethics.
