OHV Volunteers: 2017 In Review, Honorable Mentions

Alisa Graham speaking with Dave Nemeth about OHVs on a Fox 13 News segment.

With 2017 coming to a close and we examine the past year, we are continually amazed at the hard work and dedication of Utah’s OHV volunteer community.

Through a combination of service projects, media outreach, and education efforts, OHV volunteers contributed a total of 2,548.5 hours throughout 2017.

These volunteer hours have helped keep trails open, safe, and enjoyable for the public who enjoy them.

All of these dedicated organizations and individuals share a common goal of protecting recreation access and serve as great examples of what it means to give back to one’s community.

We would like to thank all of our volunteers as well our partners. We look forward to spending some trail time with you in 2018.

Happy New Year from the Division of Parks and Recreation Off-Highway Vehicle Program.

These volunteer opportunities weremade possible through funding and partnership with the Utah BLM, U.S. Forest Service, and Division of Parks and Recreation OHV Program.
