Tread Lightly! works with newest Alliance Partner Sun Valley Adaptive Sports

Sun Valley, Idaho

Over the Fourth of July holiday week Tread Lightly’s Education and Stewardship team was in Ketchum, Idaho for a week of Tread Trainer courses, outdoor ethics awareness workshops, and educational outreach.  Below our Education and Stewardship Programs Manager, Justin Lilly, shares the organizational history of Tread Lightly! Inc. during the Tread Trainer course for Sun Valley Adaptive Sports staff.

Working with the Sun Valley Adaptive Sports staff in the field provided an opportunity to introduce responsible outdoor recreation and stewardship initiatives to the staff and clients who are enjoying the out of doors in the Sawtooth National Forest over one of the busiest weeks of the year in the Wood River valley.

Pictured below, Lightfoot enjoys the ride in the 4th of July Parade through Hailey, Idaho with the team from Mountain Niceness Productions!

Many Thanks to Sean Mcentee and the staff at Sun Valley Adaptive Sports and Higher Ground programs for the chance to connect and collaborate while bringing Tread Lightly! to Ketchum, Idaho!

Big ups,

Tread Lightly! Education and Stewardship Programs Staff
