Poker Ride- Assignments
JOIN-PARTICIPATE-DONATEAll off-highway vehicle users should be aware of the many threats against our rights and privileges to ride on public lands. Perhaps you are wondering what YOU can do to help protect your rights? It boils down to three simple things that WE must do if we are to protect our access to public lands.
Join a local club and get involved with issues in your "own backyard'.
Join state level organizations such as USA-ALL, UTMA and Utah U4WDA. Join
national level organizations such as BRC, UFWDA and UATV.
Now that you are a member it is not good enough to just be a number. Volunteer your time and enthusiasm to the groups that you have joined. Introduce yourself to the local land managers at the BLM and Forest Service. Ask to be added to their mailing list and stay informed as to what decisions are being made that you can help influence. Show them that you care and that you are willing to help them make wise-use decisions.
Now that you are an ACTIVE member of clubs and organizations it is up to YOU to help fund the fight. You already have thousands of dollars invested machines, equipment, apparel and accessories, so it's time to invest some money into the most important part of the whole equation-TRAILS AND LAND to ride on. Without funding from individuals and clubs the organizations can not fight this expensive battle. So each one of us must budget as much as possible to fund the battle. How much is it worth to you to insure that your children will be able to access the public lands.
