Tread Lightly!, the national nonprofit and leading organization supporting outdoor recreation, has launched the www.JoinTreadLightly.org URL to encourage increased membership in support of its 25th anniversary this year.
JoinTreadLightly.org is a direct link to the organization’s new member page where individuals can sign up for a range of memberships from $25 to $250 per year. Ninety percent of funds that Tread Lightly! raises go directly to supporting its mission of promoting responsible recreation through ethics education and stewardship initiatives.
“Tread Lightly!’s work impacts both land and water and is representative of nearly every form of outdoor recreation,” said Lori McCullough, Tread Lightly!’s executive director. “Growing our member base is a priority that will help Tread Lightly! continue to expand our reach and do more good for the recreational activities that we all enjoy.”
Highlights of how Tread Lightly! leveraged membership and corporate partner donations in 2014 include: delivering its educational and stewardship message to 40 million outdoor recreation participants, dedicating more than 370 volunteer hours and numerous other projects and programs.
“Tread Lightly! has done great work, and we have even more exciting programs planned for 2015 – we encourage everyone who enjoys our great outdoors to get involved,” McCullough said.
