Grant Comments Needed for California OHV Program

Be an OHV Champion and Comment on CA OHV Grant Process by April 3 Deadline

 
Stop and Make a Grant Comment
 
QWR is committed to the collaborative process as a strategy to bring land agency staff and the trail-based recreation community together with a common goal of both protecting resources and providing a high-quality outdoor experience.
 
In CA and other states with an OHV grant program, part of that collaboration is weighing in with comments on agency grant proposals.
 
The public review and comment period for the CA OHV 2016/17 Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program ends at 5:00pm (Pacific Standard Time) on Monday, April 3, 2017. Agency staff have worked hard to prepare these grant submissions and now it is our turn to comment on the various grant proposals before the April 3 deadline. 
 
Don’t feel you have to comment on every grant.  Just focus on the areas where you recreate.  Also, don’t forget to comment on any LE or Sheriff grants that are submitted.  LE is an important part of managed OHV recreation in the 21st Century.   In addition there are non-profit applicants that submit grants… feel free to comment on those.

QWR believes the quality of our trail future is directly proportional to the quality of the collaborative process/stakeholder involvement on your Forest or BLM unit.  It is time for OHVers to do their part.

 

4th Annual Whiskey Falls Trail Appreciation Day

 4th Annual Whiskey Falls Trail  

Appreciation Day

 

Iron Telephone Staging Area

 

           Saturday June 4, 2016              

 

Well spring has come and gone and we are well on our way into the summer months and the Forest Service has swung most of the locked gates open for the public to start using the forest again for the year.  The conditions in the forest just cannot get any better than they are right now and what a great time to come out and lend a hand to help make the Sierra National Forest a better place. 

 

 I am sure that everybody has been tinkering with their toys all winter and spring and are just itching to get out and play with them.  So bring out your wife, kids, friends and your favorite 4WD, ATV, JEEP, MOTORCYCLE, SUV, UTV or any other OHV you may have.  Or if you are into FISHING, HUNTING, MOUNTAIN BIKING, ROCK CLIMBING, or just like to use the Sierra National Forest and would like to lend a hand to help us improve the appearance and condition of the roads and trails here in the Sierra National Forest then this is the event for you.

 

 Please come join the Stewards of the Sierra National Forest and the Bass Lake Ranger District for a fun day of driving, riding, and trail appreciation support in the Whiskey Falls Area located at the intersection of Forest Road 8S09 (Peckinpah Rd) and 7S07 (Fish Creek Rd) for you GPS minded folks ( N 37° 15.449  W 119° 26.931 ) just above North Fork California.  We will meet at the Iron Telephone Staging Area (Green Snow Gate) at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning June 4, 2016 and will split into groups from there.

 

Our mission for the day is to have a lot of fun driving, and riding around the area and do some light maintenance on the road and trail system and remove as much of the unsightly trash left lying around.  The Stewards of the Sierra will provide all of the tools and supplies necessary to accomplish this great day of giving back to your forest and helping to improve and keep your OHV areas clean and open.  At the end of the day the Stewards will be hosting a FREE BBQ LUNCH WITH YOUR REGISTRATION and our sponsors will be hosting a FREE RAFLE TABLE full of swag.

 

             

 

  So bring a couple of your friends, get your clubs involved and come out and have some fun and make a difference in your forest.  Let’s show the Forest Service just how much we care about our Sierra National Forest and how working together we can keep it open for everybody to enjoy.

 

 To help us plan and make sure we have enough Drinks, Equipment, and Food please take a moment to REGISTER HERE.  Or go to  www.sotsnf.org and click on the REGISTRATION BANNER to let us know how many of you will be attending.  Or give me a call at 559-977-2482 If you need more information.  Let’s make the 4th Annual Whiskey Falls Trail Appreciation Day a great one and kick off a great summer of fun in the forest.
