Tread Lightly Tread Trainer course is an 6 and a half hour course designed to provide a "crash course" on outdoor ethics focusing on motorized and mechanized recreation on both land and water. Participation in the course qualifies individuals to present the Tread Lightly! message to others in their state or region. Participants will work with a Master Tread Trainer on understanding the role outdoor ethics play in the recreation community, learn the Tread Lightly! principles of responsible recreation and be provided with the tools to conduct workshops and coordinate community outreach. This training is of interest to all Scouters involved with the BSA's outdoor ethics program, including rank advancement, youth leadership positions, awareness awards, and action awards.
The Tread Trainer course is designed to help volunteers promote the message responsible recreation where lands and waters are protected. This course is centered on land based recreation focusing on the Tread Lightly! principles designed to minimize impacts on roads, trails and the wildlands they access.
