The Bureau of Land Management's Resource Advisory Councils have a documented ability to influence and guide agency priorities. The volunteers on these councils can help identify projects that may not seem, on the surface, to be related to off-highway vehicles, yet can have a direct effect on riding areas. For example, discussion of a timber harvest project may not fully consider its effect on existing OHV opportunities.
RAC members bring their own distinctive perspectives to the planning process, and they also need members of the public to join the discussion. Now is the time to engage with your land managers by attending a meeting and making your views known.
At the meeting RAC members will receive an orientation of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act and may make recommendations on recreation fee proposals for a variety of sites within the Northwest Oregon District. Other topics will include general updates and a review of minutes from the July 2017 meeting.
When: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22
Where: BLM Northwest Oregon District Office, 1717 Fabry Road SE, Salem, Ore.

Now more than ever, it is crucial that you and your riding friends become members of the AMA to help protect our riding freedoms. More members mean more clout against the opponents of motorcycling. That support will help fight for your rights - on the road, trail and racetrack and in the halls of government.
