Tread Lightly!

When fun meets responsibility and environmental awareness.

Based in Utah, Tread Lightly! is a nonprofit organization that leads an initiative to promote responsible riding, balancing off-road riders’ need for adventure with environmental conservation and protection.


Responsible riding is our cause

Responsible riding is in our DNA. Our passion for trail adventures was always tied to making the off-road a better place for all riders while considering environmental protection.

That is why Can-Am partnered with Tread Lightly! Our mission is to protect motorized trail access and public lands through stewardship projects and responsible recreation education. Can-Am’s partnership has funded Tread Lightly! trail improvement projects throughout the United States. In addition to the projects, Can-Am has donated Can-Am Defender Side-by-Side units to assist in future off-road trail maintenance projects.
