Second Webinar Module Now Available for registration via the NOHVCC website
Registration is available for 3 sessions of the second module, plus 1 session of the first module
The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) is pleased to announce the schedule of the second module of their Public Land Advocacy webinar series. This 4-part series is designed to assist government agency personnel, OHV enthusiasts, and other interested parties with creating and maintaining sustainable OHV trails.
And best of all, due to funding provided by the Motorcycle Industry Council, the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, and the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association as well as the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative Program, this webinar series is free to you.
The second module is entitled, Trail System Planning – Part 1. It will cover the basic principles of trail management, called the 4Es, and will go into details regarding building trails of OHV recreation that are environmentally sound and sustainable. The module will also introduce land managers to the OHV recreationists and talk about their needs and wants in a trail system so that the trail can be designed to make them want to stay on your trails.
The other three modules are:
· The first module, Route Designation: How did we get here? will give enthusiasts a look at how the forest service designates routes, their structure, and their planning process.
· The third module, System Trail Planning – Part 2, takes over where the second module ends and talks about signing and mapping, monitoring and maintenance of trails.
· The fourth module, Making it Work, will help riders understand how to be effective in their efforts to influence the decisions that will determine where they can ride.
The workshop modules were developed in cooperation with the American Motorcyclist Association, BlueRibbon Coalition, Motorcycle Industry Council, Off-Road Business Association, Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, and United Four Wheel Drive Associations.
