The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) is conducting a Motorized Route Designation Workshop in August. The purpose of the workshop is to provide information for agency personnel and other stakeholders interested in travel management and the route designation process on National Forests in Eastern Oregon. The workshop will focus on effective implementation of the USFS Travel Management Rule. It is not a Forest Service meeting to gather comments on any particular travel plan. Participants will gain a better understanding of the planning and route designation process, how to best participate in the local processes and how to provide meaningful comments during the entire process.

While the sessions on Thursday and Friday are designed primarily for Agency personnel and the sessions on Saturday and Sunday are designed primarily for the public, the sessions are open to all who want to attend and there is no charge. Other state and federal agency personnel are welcome and encouraged to attend both sessions. Continental breakfast will be served at 7:30 AM each day. Lunch and breaks will also be provided.

Registration is required on-line at:
