Wonder how JOhn Q Public can get involved....
· Encourage and Expand Stakeholder Involvement.
One of the most nationally innovative approaches of its kind in dealing with increasingly controversial off-highway recreation issues was the formation in May 2000 of the more than 50-member Stakeholders Roundtable.
The stakeholders involved in off-highway recreation are diverse. In general, they consist of OHV and non-motorized recreation enthusiasts, environmental organizations, private property owners, public land management agencies, law enforcement agencies, local communities, businesses, and local governments.
I think, that the fight to get and keep existing lands open, starts with us. The Enviro Nazi's have an agenda, DO WE? Are we ready to put up or shutup, the article stipulates one clear point, the more riders = less land, its not that land is being taken away it is in small increments but, its the poulation of newer riders each year that cramp the areas we do have.
I thnk the article is a good read
