Intern Takes Online Awareness Course

Hello Tread Lightly! advocates,

EvanMy name is Evan Robins. I am a brand new intern for Tread Lightly!. I’m currently a Communication student at Weber State University. I wanted to intern with Tread Lightly! because I love the outdoors and want to help protect our wild places. Tread Lightly! offers the opportunity to help protect the things and places I love though stewardship and education.

Today is my first day and I was asked to take the Online Awareness Course. It was a very Spill Kit]insightful course. I learned much more than I anticipated. I learned the Forest Service offers maps of approved trails to go off-roading called Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM’s). They are also available at Forest Service offices. I also learned the importance of a spill kit and plan to start making one tonight.  Check it out! I’m sure you will find some new and interesting ideas.
