Western Hunting and Conservation Expo


Earlier this month the Tread Lightly! education and stewardship department were promoting responsible recreation at the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo at the Salt Palace convention center downtown.

Tread Lightly! staff was a part of the Mule Deer Foundation’s youth education program on the opening day of the show, and outreach staff had the opportunity to interact with hundreds of youth to promote outdoor ethics education through the Respected Access Is Open Access campaign.  The Ride On Utah campaign was also well represented by Agency staff from the Utah Department on Natural Resources staff who worked alongside our staff at Tread Lightly! to educate the event attendees about the statewide Ride On Utah campaign promoting responsible motorized recreation across the state’s lands and waterways.

The team at Tread Lightly! looks forward to seeing you down the trail in Moab for the 2014 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab the week of April 14th – 18th!


All the best,

The Tread Lightly! Education and Stewardship team
