COHVCO 8th Annual OHV Management Workshop

8th Annual OHV Management Workshop: "A Tactical Approach to Now and the Future"
July 10-13, 2008
Salida, Colorado

This Special Workshop is FREE For Enthusiasts with FREE Lodging for qualified club reps.

Sponsored by the Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO) with assistance from: NOHVCC, MIC, BRC, US Forest Service, BLM and Colorado State Parks

This year's workshop will take a more tactical, "on the ground" approach with an emphasis on sustainability of existing designated trail systems and building toward future growth of; "Life After The First MVUM". A combined audience of Land Management Agency personnel and Volunteer User Organizations and Recreational Enthusiasts can sit down one on one in a relaxed, educational forum and discuss local issues, and develop the needed contacts to interact closely on the status and implementation of Designated OHV Routes by Travel Management Planning in that area.

Included will be educational discussions of OHV Management Techniques, Volunteer Stewardship, issues and general principles of enhanced social and environmental monitoring, maintenance and management of sustainable motorized trails. This will be coupled with the need to address easily understood companion maps and effective signage.

This collaborative effort will help to build camaraderie and a sense of understanding among agencies and different user groups.
