The Tahoe National Forest will host a virtual presentation 6:30 p.m. February 10 for those interested in providing input on California OHV grant applications.
The Tahoe NF is preparing its annual application to the California Department of Parks and Recreation’s Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division. The annual application requests funding for trail maintenance, law enforcement, education and safety, development of trails and facilities, and restoration of existing trails.
The hour-long meeting will allow the public to learn more about the grant process and how to provide input.
The meeting will be hosted via Microsoft Teams. Those interested in attending do not need a Teams account to access the presentation.
“I encourage anyone interested in the OHV program to join in this presentation by the forest and district trail managers, and provide their ideas on these proposals,” said Trails Program Coordinator Joe Chavez.
The annual grants provide important funds for the Tahoe NF to develop and maintain trails and trailheads. This includes repairing winter storm damage, restoring trailside environments, covering patrol units, educating trail users and monitoring OHV areas.
When finalized, the grants will be available for public review and comment on the State of California’s website from March 8, 2022 to May 2, 2022.
Comments can be submitted during the meeting via the Microsoft Teams chat function, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comments can also be mailed to the following address prior to February 24:
