Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

Those of you in the Grand Junction area may have heard about the formation of a multi-use trail advocacy group called the Grand Valley Trails Alliance. According to their website, the group's mission statement is:

The Grand Valley Trails Alliance works to support, enhance and sustain a world-class multiple-use trail network in western Colorado's Grand Valley by facilitating trail planning, education, construction, maintenance and management between trail user groups, communities, and land managers.

The group is holding an open house this Thursday, March 8th at 6:00 PM. Given that the BLM's Grand Valley Field Office is slated to release the draft of a new Resource Management Plan, this group could be quite influential. We recommend that BRC members try to attend the meeting on Wednesday to learn more.

They are asking folks to RSVP via their website: http://gvtrails.com/RSVP/

I've pasted their announcement below. It's also on the web HERE

As always, please call or email with questions or comments.

CALIFORNIA - Help Preserve OHV Use On The Six Rivers National Forest
The Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California has a new Forest Supervisor, Merv George. Merv and his family are from the area and I believe it is important for OHV recreationists from across this county who have visited or want to visit this part of California to let him know that you value continued access to historic motorized roads and trails. This part of the state is also home to a number of hard-core anti-access groups who most certainly will be making demands on his office to close roads and trails
