ATV Industry Facts: Did You Know?
Some important figures getting down and dirty.
We don’t normally think of Parks Commissioners as our pals on the trails yet recently that’s exactly what went down recently in Cali.
According to a report from the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC), Honda, Kawasaki and Polaris provided Side-by-Sides (green stickers front and center) for commissioners and officials from the California State Parks, Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation to tour the Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA) alongside the public.
According to the report, the tour included various stops during the 35-mile trail ride where Hungry Valley SVRA staff provided informational talks about the SVRA, including the geology of the area, grassland management, natural and cultural resource protection, law enforcement, trail maintenance, and the interpretation program. Tour participants visited the Quail Canyon Special Event Area, Condor Mesa Overlook, Interpretation and Education Facilities, and the 4×4 Practice Track.
In attendance were California State Parks Director Lisa Mangat, OHMVR Division Acting Deputy Director Dan Canfield, OHMVR Division staff, and members of the public to enjoy a “day on the trail.”
Bonus Fact: Hungry Valley SVRA protects over 4,000 acres of some of the most exceptional native grasslands remaining in the state and represents some of the best examples of the balance between environmental stewardship and off-highway vehicle recreation.
