The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino National Forest:
The Mendocino National Forest is asking for public input on its grant proposal to the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR).
The public will be able to review and comment on the forest’s preliminary grant application beginning Mar. 8 through May 2, 2022.
The funds will be used to enhance and manage off-highway vehicle (OHV) motorized recreation on National Forest System lands.
The grant proposal supports law enforcement activities such as public information and education, enforcement and resource protection as well as ground operations like maintaining trails and equipment, operating water systems and monitoring trail conditions over 247 miles of designated OHV trails.
“Public participation is an important component of the grant proposal process,” said Forest Engineer Shannon Pozas.
“We appreciate the support we receive which enables us to continue managing an extensive OHV motorized recreation program for generations to come.”
The forest will submit its preliminary grant application to the OHMVR by Mar. 7, and the proposal will be available for public review on Mar. 8 at https://olga.ohv.parks.ca.gov/egrams_ohmvr/user/home.aspx.
