CENTERVILLE, UT. (Jul 12, 2021)— Tread Lightly!, a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting responsible outdoor recreation through stewardship and educational programs, is announcing a new collaboration with the Bronco Wild Fund that will support a variety of public lands stewardship projects nationally.
“We’d like to thank the Bronco Wild Fund for their support of Tread Lightly!’s mission through this collaboration,” said Matt Caldwell, Tread Lightly! executive director. “We’re excited to grow our impact with Bronco through stewardship projects across the country.”

The contribution to Tread Lightly! will fund multiple, nationwide stewardship projects that protect or enhance motorized and off-road trail access.
“The Bronco Wild Fund was created to collaborate with agencies and organizations devoted to keeping the great outdoors great, while connecting people to the outdoors responsibly,” said Darci Gurney, Ford Brand Content & Alliances Integrations Manager. “Tread Lightly!’s mission embodies that ethic and we are very proud to support their stewardship efforts.”

About Bronco Wild Fund
The Bronco Wild Fund is Ford’s mission to connect people to the outdoors, responsibly. Inspired by the epic return of the legendary Ford Bronco, the fund is equally focused on both access and preservation. We want to encourage people to go deeper into the outdoors with new and exciting resources. And we want to motivate them to actively protect and enhance our public lands, so that these remarkable places may inspire just as much awe in those who discover them next. Toward that purpose, the Bronco Wild Fund is teaming up with like-minded collaborators: agencies, organizations and everyday heroes devoted to keeping the great outdoors great. And we’re here to help, with grants, scholarships, contributions and the support of our extensive dealer network. In fact, a portion of the profits from every Bronco sold goes directly to Bronco Wild Fund collaborator initiatives – building a legacy of access, preservation and stewardship from the ground up.
