The State of California Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Mendocino National Forest have maintained a successful partnership for over 24 years, providing funding assistance for the management of off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation on National Forest lands through the California State OHV Cooperative Agreement Program.

The Mendocino National Forest is soliciting public input specific to the Forest’s 2007-08 grant application proposals for Cooperative Agreements with the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Division.
