Support Preservation of Historic OHV Recreation on Matrix Lands adjacent to Jawbone Canyon & Dove Springs OHV Areas

Dear OHV Enthusiast:

Over the last 40 years, many of us in California have seen private land owners (developers, ranchers, timber owners, and mining interests) close their properties to historic OHV recreation.   They have a right to exercise their private property rights.

However, OHVers have a rare opportunity to secure long-term access to existing OHV recreation that is occurring on private property near the Jawbone OHV Area.   The CA OHV Program has been working hard to purchase about 59 privately owned parcels in an effort to secure said lands for long-term OHV use.
