Tread Lightly! offers grants for trail maintenance

September 17, 2013

Tread Lightly! – a national organization that works to protect and enhance recreation access and opportunities by promoting outdoor ethics – is offering grants for trail maintenance and other work.

Tread Lightly! says it recognizes that one of the best ways to promote responsible outdoor recreation is to support enthusiasts in the stewardship of their favorite areas.

“With the help of licensing agreements from some of Tread Lightly!’s top partners, the Tread Lightly! grants are designed to help individuals and groups organize clean ups, trail maintenance work days and other small stewardship projects,” the group says. “The average grant is under $500. Those funds can be used for everything from feeding volunteers to purchasing equipment, trash bags and tools.”
