UFWDA thanks all those who worked to preserve OHV access to nearly 100,000 acres of Southern Californian desert for much of the year. A provision included in the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) transfers 79,000 acres to the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps base while creating the ‘Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area’ with federal protection to over 96,000 acres, as established in 1980 for OHV recreation by the State of California.
Rep Paul Cook (R-CA) was largely instrumental in creating the shared use solution with the strong support of many individuals and organizations from the OHV community.
The US House of Representatives has approved the provision, with the Senate set to ratify the plan this year.
