With the increased popularity of overlanding and vehicle-based adventures of all kinds, our campsites and trails on public lands are experiencing unprecedented use.
While increased use of public lands creates issues, it also creates opportunities for more support directed toward their conservation, restoration, and enhancement.
In this episode of the X Overland Podcast, we sit down with Executive Director of Tread Lightly!, Matt Caldwell, to explore the issues, solutions, and opportunities surrounding the use of our public lands, trails, and camping areas.
Tread Lightly! is a non-profit organization with the mission of educating the public on how to enjoy their public lands in a way that keeps access open to the trails and campsites we love.
Tread Lightly! teaches practices that involve all forms of recreational use on our public lands but is especially focused on those of us who enjoy motorized recreation: vehicles, motorcycles, ATVs/UTVs, and even electric bicycles.
Executive Director of Tread Lightly!, Matt Caldwell, joins today’s podcast to share insight and information into issues currently affecting our public lands while providing us with the tools we need to address these problems so we can keep the doors to our favorite recreational areas open and leave lands we love looking better than we found them.
