7th Annual OHV Management Workshop:
Friday Eve, Saturday & Sunday
2 Dates in 2 Locations
July 20-22, 2007 in Monte Vista, Colorado
August 3-5, 2007 in Montrose, Colorado

This Special Weekend Workshop is FREE For Enthusiasts with FREE Lodging for qualified club reps.

Sponsored by the Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO) with assistance from: NOHVCC, BRC, US Forest Service, BLM and Colorado State Parks. The purpose of this year's workshops is to assist enthusiasts and clubs to get mobilized as to how they can work with Land Managers moving toward designated OHV routes. Enthusiasts and Local Land Managers can sit down one on one and discuss local issues, learn the status of Travel Management Planning in that area and develop the needed contacts to be involved with the implementation of designated motorized routes in that area. This collaborative effort will help to build camaraderie and a sense of understanding among agencies and different user groups in a relaxed, educational forum. With the ongoing USFS Regional Implementation of the National OHV Rule and the new direction of BLM Resource Management Plans That are also going to designated routes, a majority of this workshop will be focused on empowering volunteers to be organized in their efforts and be provided with the proper tools and information for creating volunteer opportunities in land stewardship.
