Contact(s): Diana Fredlund

SONORA, California – The Stanislaus National Forest announced a public comment period beginning March 6 on preliminary 2019 off-highway vehicle grant applications. Public comments may be submitted until April 2, 2018.

Forest recreation specialists and OHV managers have completed three draft grant applications proposing three off-highway vehicle projects for consideration by the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division.

The proposals include a forest-wide operations and maintenance project for OHV trails and facilities, a forest-wide education and outreach project and a forest-wide law enforcement patrol project.  The OHVMV Division grants are integral to the ongoing success of the forest’s OHV program.

The public is invited to review and comment on the preliminary application packages.
