Every action, big or small, counts toward preserving the health of our ecosystems, so we can protect our recreational access, forever.

A few of the events mentioned on this page have already occurred. Head to our Access & Stewardship Initiatives page to catch up on what’s new.

One Steward. One Group. One Movement.

Wherever you are on your stewardship journey, it’s each action that makes the difference. While we all navigate the landscape of highly pressured lands, we celebrate moments of stewardship—big or small. Teach a youngster in your life through the lens of our little Stuart the Steward, whose mission is to awaken the steward in all of us, or share a new skill with someone who’s learning a sport. We all have our own path toward stewardship, but moving forward is movement enough.

Scroll on for educational resources, a quiz to test your knowledge, special edition gear, a not-to-miss virtual event with some of the best stewards we know, and more.

Navigating Stewardship: One Moment at a Time

Join us in celebrating stewardship. One moment can create a movement.

onX Hunt: Navigating Stewardship

Whether you’re just taking hunter safety or a seasoned vet in the field, stewardship is a journey. Learn about ways you can continue to educate yourself or pass on your knowledge to those around you.

onX Offroad: Navigating Stewardship

Stewardship is what will protect the open road ahead of you. Join a haul out party, lobby to maintain access we already have, and trail restoration will keep landscapes open for the wheelers of the next generation.

onX Backcountry: Navigating Stewardship

Stewardship action will preserve the landscapes and trails ahead of you. Test your knowledge, pass on what you know, and purchase threads for a great cause this month with our Navigating Stewardship campaign. 

What Stewardship Looks Like

Being a steward can take many different forms. Sometimes, it’s conservation or habitat restoration. While at other points, it includes planning ahead, paying attention, being considerate, or just not being a jerk.

Wherever you are on your navigating stewardship journey, take one moment today to engage in it.
