Advocating for access since 1959
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 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.
We work to prevent federal legislation that would create more wilderness areas.
We work with state and federal agencies to ensure that the needs of threatened and endangered species are balanced with recreational access.
We work with local, state and federal agencies to monitor regulations and legislation pertaining to riparian areas that would negatively affect recreation.
We work with local, state and federal agencies on issues affecting air quality to ensure that recreational interests are represented.
We monitor renewable energy projects that affect access to trails and recreation areas.
