Example of Grant Funded OHV Bridge in the Sierra National Forest
Installed to Protect Water Quality
QWR believes the future of OHV recreation on public lands is dependent on many factors including agency commitment, appropriated funds, partnerships with user groups and non-profits, volunteerism, use of modern trail management techniques, and non-federal grant opportunities.
QWR would like to highlight a recent example of a where an OHV industry grant program has teamed up with the National Forest Foundation on projects to armor trails (to address soil erosion) and enhance “looped opportunities” on the Superior National Forest.
National Forest Foundation News Release
This is a good case-study that highlights a growing trend in managed OHV recreation where both traditional and non-traditional stakeholders and partners are working in a collaborative effort to enhance sustainable OHV recreation on public lands.
QWR believe this new trend is important and will help protect resources and secure high quality OHV recreational activities on public lands for generations to come.
