BLM Seeks Your Input on Local OHV Trails for Grant Funding


If you think OHV trails in the area could use improvement, The Bureau of Land Management’s Northern District is looking for your thoughts.

A virtual public meeting for OHV recreation on public lands was held this week for the Redding, Arcata, and Eagle Lake field offices, where representatives from each area presented information on their OHV programs and pending requests for grants from the California State Parks OHV Recreation Division. You still have time to share your ideas if you missed the opportunity. Grant applications are still in the process for the 2023 grant cycle through May, and you’re invited to provide feedback to help identify new trails, redesign routes for better connectivity, find safer solutions for shared trails, and provide better access. Your comments will need to be made by the submission deadline of March 6. Once those proposals are submitted to the State, anyone interested can then review and comment on the preliminary applications from March 7 to May 1.
