BLM Eagle Lake Field Office Seeks Public Comments on OHV Grant Proposal

The Bureau of Land Management’s Eagle Lake Field Office is accepting public input on management needs and projects that would benefit off-highway vehicle recreation on public lands.

Public comments or suggestions submitted to the Eagle Lake Field Office before Friday, February 23rd, will be used to develop a preliminary grant application to the California State Parks, Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division.

“In past years we have used these grant funds to improve off-highway riding and driving opportunities for our communities,” said BLM Eagle Lake Field Manager Brian Novosak. “We look forward to seeing suggestions from those who enjoy OHV sports on public lands.”

The field office will seek grant funds for maintenance and law enforcement patrol at the Fort Sage and Rice Canyon off-highway vehicle areas, to acquire OHV recreation land at Lassen County’s Wendel Dune, and to repair vehicle damage in wilderness study areas. Other ideas may come from public comments and suggestions.

The OHMVR Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program supports off-highway vehicle recreation in California by providing financial assistance to cities, counties, districts, federal agencies, state agencies, educational institutions, and federally recognized Native American tribes and nonprofit entities.

Public comments or suggestions can be submitted by mail to the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, 2550 Riverside Dr., Susanville, CA 96130, attention Marisa Williams, or by email to [email protected].
Anyone interested can review preliminary applications by visiting the grants section at http://ohv.parks.ca.gov, from March 6th through April 2nd.
