How Do I Get Involved in Access and Land Use Issues?
Getting involved in land use planning and access to public lands is critical to keeping our trails open. It's not that difficult or time consuming. Bureaucracy is not hard to deal with once you understand the basics of their role in land use and access. The payback will be more open trails for you and your children. Without our involvement in public lands and access issues, the special interest anti-access folks will shut us out of public lands.
Get folks to join organized recreation; be an advocate for your sport; include others in what you do; write hand written letters to your elected officials and tell them what you believe in and expect of them; work on educating other users so they don't abuse our public lands; and donate to causes you believe in.
