CORVA is the hardest working group of offroaders I've ever met. they have lawers flingin injuctions. Organize Trips for offroaders like us to go and walk the halls of the State and National capitals to get face to face with the people who make the laws and have our issues heard. all that and they still have time to organize some great rides and events

and inresponse to this:
I call a big BS, Sure it is better to monetarily support these groups and provide volunteer hours, but monetary support does help the cause, just look at the NRA, very few members, in relation to the total number, go out and pick weeds at the range, but they all send in the checks which help supply lawyers, lobbyist, etc, and they are one of the most powerful special interest groups in the Country. So Velo, think before you post something that might be the excuse people are looking for to not support these groups at any level.
These organizations are our representative. We are there back bone and there strength. Without our support they will eventually lose. we don't want that to happen...do we?
The only way we can win these battle is this...get involve with local clubs, write a letters to the FS, state government, let your voice hear, let them know we are serious about our sport. If every dirtbikers do their part....The national organization like the BBR, they can fight harder with our support.
Without our support, why should they? what is the reason they should fight hard without our support?
And beside, when you involved you feel much happier, becauce you took part in them.
Sorry about my English.

The group is composed of the owners of "Green Sticker" vehicles such as ATV's, motorcycles, 3-wheelers, trail bikes, and dune buggies, as well as "street legal" 4X4 vehicles, dual sport motorcycles, bajas, and desert racers.
CORVA's main purpose is to work with the land managers for responsible off-highway vehicular access and recreation opportunities. Secondarily, we educate our membership on the constantly changing rules and regulations and promote clean-up and trail maintenance projects.
We are very active in the political arena and contribute to a lobbyist in Sacramento. We work closely with the State Department of Parks and Recreation, providing input to the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Program from the user's standpoint. We provide a valuable resource to land managers in the form of dedicated OHV enthusiasts who believe in responsible vehicular access.
A portion of the budgets for California's national forests and the public lands administered by the BLM is funded by grants from the Green Sticker Program. We work with land managers to formulate the grants and give our input about the grants to the OHMVR Program which administers them. We also review how effectively our Green Sticker money was used in each program.
We are active at all levels of the land management public process with both the BLM and the USFS. We do this by commenting on environmental documents on as many issues as possible and maintaining close relationships with personnel in the field as well as the staff.
We coordinate with other multiple use organizations ranging from snowmobiles to horse enthusiasts to protect multiple use rights from the environmental extremists. We are "dedicated to protecting our lands for the people, not from the people."
If you would like to join the fight to protect our public lands for multiple-use recreation, fill in a membership application and send it in!

Public Lands for the People was established to educate the people about their rights and the laws that apply to them in their daily activities and help educate the government agencies in their application of the law.
In short, we fight to uphold constitutional and statutory rights related to the use of appropriated and unappropriated public lands
They are for all land use rights for all groups but do focus on mining rights. Miners and off-roaders have a lot in common in their fight for land use.
