Forest seeks comments on OHV grant application

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA – The Mendocino National Forest is asking for public input on its grant proposal to the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division, or OHMVR.

The funds will be used to enhance and manage off-highway vehicle, or 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. We appreciate the support we receive which enables us to continue managing an extensive OHV motorized recreation program for generations to come,” said Forest Engineer Shannon Pozas.

The MNF will submit the preliminary grant application to the OHMVR by March 1, 2021.

The public will be able to review and comment on the MNF’s preliminary grant application by visiting from March 2 to May 3, 2021.
