Arizona -( Outdoors enthusiasts have an opportunity to help promote good stewardship of our public lands and protect access for a variety of recreational opportunities.

The national nonprofit group Tread Lightly!, in partnership with the Arizona Game and Fish Department and other entities, is conducting an online auction to help raise funds for the “Respected Access in Arizona” campaign. The auction is an extension of the Nov. 7 fundraiser attended by more than 250 people at the Ben Avery Clay Target Center.

More than 60 businesses and organizations participated in the second-annual event, including presenting sponsors John Deere and Dallas Safari Club. Other sponsors included and Federal Premium Ammunition (platinum), and National Shooting Sports Foundation and Arizona Archery Club (gold).

Proceeds will help fund campaign strategies, including highway billboards, outdoor signage, educational brochures, public service announcements, a special website, and stewardship projects. In the past year, the campaign supported cleanup projects that engaged more than 1,100 volunteers in the removal of more than 100 tons of trash from public lands around the Phoenix metropolitan area.
