SBNF Holding Open House Thursday To Get Public Input On Uses For Off-Road Grants

San Bernardino National Forest administrators are encouraging the public to provide suggestions for grants that will improve the forest’s off-highway vehicle program by either attending an open house or sending suggestions.
For over 20 years, San Bernardino National Forest has been a recipient of over ten million dollars from California’s Off-Highway Vehicle grants. The money has gone to creating and maintaining off-highway vehicle staging areas and trails, route monitoring and education, enforcing off-highway vehicle regulations and restoring lands damaged by off-highway vehicle use. The forest has 65 miles of green sticker trails, 169 miles of green sticker roads and an additional 734 miles of level 2 roads open to SUV/4WD use, of which 104 miles are 4WD routes.
The open house will be held Thursday, February 7, 2019, to discuss the next opportunity in off-highway vehicle grant funding from the state. The informal open house will run from 6 to 8 p.m. at the forest’s headquarters at 602 S. Tippecanoe Ave. in San Bernardino.
Interested citizens are invited to drop in at any time during the open house. Representatives from the Forest Service will be on hand.
