NEW MEXICO - NMDGF Announces OHV Trail Ambassador Training

Dear BRC Members and Supporters in New Mexico,

BRC just received an email from Gordy Spingler at the Blackfeather Trail Preservation Alliance with an announcement on the New Mexico Department of Fish and Game's OHV Trail Ambassador Program training on September 21, 2013.   

We've pasted Gordy's email below. Please take a minute to read it over, and pass it along to friends, family and riding buddies.

As always, call or email if you have any questions or comments.

NM Game and Fish Dept. runs the state OHV program, and they are starting a Trail Ambassador Program, with a training on Sept 21. Can you please send this out to your wide audience?  We are fortunate that NMDGF hired former NMOHVA president Chris Johnson to work in the OHV program.  As you can see below, Chris has a new title, OHV Education Coordinator.  As described in the attached flyer, the training will be on Saturday Sept 21.

People who are interested need to read the flyer carefully, all the way to the bottom. They MUST submit an application in advance, by Sept 13. Walk-in's will not be accepted.   Applications can be downloaded from the department website  at www.b4uride.com or obtained from the Albuquerque office.

Call Chris for more information. His phone number/email are in the flyer, and also listed below. The training will be at the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, 3841 Midway Place NE in Albuquerque.

The Grand County Council has identified over 100 miles of road closures in its proposed Public Lands Initiative (PLI) plan to be submitted to Representative Rob Bishop. This proposal is scheduled to be voted on by the end of the month, so it is imperative for you to take action today! Utah's Grand County, home to Moab's world class OHV trails, has been participating in Congressman Rob Bishop's Public Lands Initiative, a plan to resolve some of Utah's most contentious public lands issues, including Wilderness and OHV use.

Federal Plan Threatens OHV Access In Nevada Desert
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in the Las Vegas area is currently fronting a draft plan that could eliminate or greatly restrict both casual and event-based OHV recreation on approximately 3 million areas in Southern Nevada. The draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) creates an unjustified risk that might preclude "dry washes" from being designated as OHV routes. The elimination of dry or sand washes from subsequent project level travel management plans could functionally close the desert if they are not capable of being designated as routes, because motorized travel would be "limited to designated roads and trails."
