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.

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
