The nonprofit Tread Lightly! is seeking volunteers on Saturday, October 23 for an innovative new project in the Sumter National Forest. The Enoree Ranger District has been selected as the epicenter of a national evaluation of a new campaign called “Respected Access is Open Access.” Volunteers will be needed to remove litter and install important new signage. All participants will receive free lunch and a t-shirt.
We will also be holding a special Tread Trainer course on Friday, October 22 to train individuals to spread the important “Tread Lightly!” and “Respected Access is Open Access” messages to the public. More information on the course can be found below.
Our hope is that this campaign helps improve the behavior of shooters, ATV riders and all recreationists to keep the area open for generations. But we need your help to make this a success!
