NOHVCC Announces First Webinar Session Now Available

Registration is available by accessing a link on their

National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) is
pleased to announce the schedule of the first module of their
Public Land Advocacy webinar series. This 4-part series is
designed to assist government agency personnel, OHV
enthusiasts, and other interested parties with creating and
maintaining sustainable OHV trails.

And best of all, due to funding provided by the Motorcycle
Industry Council, the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America,
and the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association as well
as Yamaha OHV Access Initiative Program, this webinar series
is free to you.

The first module is entitled, Route Designation: How Did We
Get Here? Its focus is on the Forest Service Travel
Management Rule, their Planning Process, and their Structure.
This is a session you will wish to attend even if your focus
is not on the Forest Service. The information you will learn
regarding their route designation and planning process is
similar to other government agencies and helps provide a
foundation for other sessions.

The other three modules are:
· The second and third modules, System Trail
Planning – Part 1 and System Trail Planning – Part 2,
will help riders and land managers understand how to
plan, design, manage, and maintain trail systems that
meet riders’ needs by providing high quality and
adequate quantities of trails that riders will want to
stay on, not trails that they have to stay on.
· The fourth module, Making it Work, will help
riders understand how to be effective in their efforts
to influence the decisions that will determine where
they can ride.

Russ Ehnes, Executive Director of the NOHVCC said “We are very
excited to be able to offer this webinar series. Since we
will be holding several sessions of the same module, we will
be able to accommodate as many people’s schedules as possible.
This will be a great way to reach people who would not
otherwise be able to attend a workshop due to travel budget

The workshop modules were developed in cooperation with the
American Motorcyclist Association, BlueRibbon Coalition,
Motorcycle Industry Council, Off-Road Business Association,
Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, and United Four Wheel
Drive Associations.
