The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) is pleased to announce the schedule of the first module of their Public Land Advocacy webinar series. This 4-part series is designed to assist government agency personnel, OHV enthusiasts, and other interested parties with creating and maintaining sustainable OHV trails.
And best of all, due to funding provided by the Motorcycle Industry Council, the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, and the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association as well as Yamaha OHV Access Initiative Program, this webinar series is free to you.
The first module is entitled, Route Designation: How Did We Get Here? Its focus is on the Forest Service Travel Management Rule, their Planning Process, and their Structure. This is a session you will wish to attend even if your focus is not on the Forest Service. The information you will learn regarding their route designation and planning process is similar to other government agencies and helps provide a foundation for other sessions.
The other three modules are:
The second and third modules, System Trail Planning – Part 1 and System Trail Planning – Part 2, will help riders and land managers understand how to plan, design, manage, and maintain trail systems that meet riders’ needs by providing high quality and adequate quantities of trails that riders will want to stay on, not trails that they have to stay on.
The fourth module, Making it Work, will help riders understand how to be effective in their efforts to influence the decisions that will determine where they can ride.
Russ Ehnes, Executive Director of the NOHVCC said “We are very excited to be able to offer this webinar series. Since we will be holding several sessions of the same module, we will be able to accommodate as many people’s schedules as possible. This will be a great way to reach people who would not otherwise be able to attend a workshop due to travel budget constraints.”
The workshop modules were developed in cooperation with the American Motorcyclist Association, BlueRibbon Coalition, Motorcycle Industry Council, Off-Road Business Association, Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, and United Four Wheel Drive Associations.
