We maintain a full-time office in Sacramento. Our staff and volunteers have worked for decades with legislators and land use managers to provide input, influence, expertise and manpower to keep lands open to OHVs.
We have two full-time paid natural resources consultants who monitor issues facing us locally, statewide and nationally, and we also use the services of a professional lobbying firm.
Through our legal fund, we are able to participate in lawsuits to keep our land open, along with assisting other organizations with their legal battles.
We keep our members informed about the issues through our In GearTM magazine, email alerts, and our website.
I attended SLO Air Pollution Control District (APCD) Oceano Dunes SVRA hearing in Arroyo Grande yesterday and came away very disappointed in the way California State Parks just rolled over and gave the local APCD everything they wanted.
The California Department of Parks and Recreation will hold two public meetings in December to discuss the Public Works Plan for Pismo State Beach and Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA). The meetings will be held in Arroyo Grande and Bakersfield – details are listed below.
At these meetings, the planning team will present the Public Works Plan Options as well as preferred concepts for the Butterfly Grove Public Access Project, the Pismo State Beach Boardwalk Project, and the Oso Flaco Improvement Project.
The Marine Corps will temporarily close the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area to the public beginning Thursday, April 30 through Monday, May 11, 2020 in order to conduct military training. The closure period will include the necessary time required to conduct pre- and post-inspections of the land with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The Marine Corps will provide notification when the area is reopened for public access.
GOV. NEWSOM VETOES CARNEGIE BILL – Big victory last night for everyone associated with OHV recreation. Congrats to all of the activist men and women who attended hearings, sent letters, made phone calls, or provided insight while all the time remembering that we are stewards of this generation who protect responsible OHV recreation for future generations of California families.
