A Management Workshop for Land Managers and OHV enthusiasts is to be held at R & S Powersports Training & Corporate Offices at 11200 Lomas NE, Suite 201, Albuquerque on August 27 and 28. The purpose of the workshop is bring together land managers and planners responsible for managing OHV recreation and the OHV recreation enthusiasts to ensure a positive future for OHV recreation in New Mexico. New Forest Service OHV management guidelines have mandated an overhaul in how OHV use is managed on public land. While the guidelines require significant changes for some areas, the specifics on how these new regulations affect users will largely be determined on district-by-district basis. To be able to address these issues with local land managers, OHV users will need to understand the guidelines, the process and the people charged with the duties to enact these new regulations.

The presenters at the workshop will be Tom Crimmins, retired Trail Consultant for US Forest Service and Valerie Guardia, of the US Forest Service, Southwest Region. The objectives of the workshop are:

* To determine the current status of Forest planning on the National Forests in New Mexico.
* To identify direction for access management planning on the Forests and Districts in New Mexico.
* To develop an agency contact directory for OHV enthusiasts to use when working with the National Forests in New Mexico.
* To provide land managers with a general understanding of OHV planning principles and an opportunity for discussion of OHV issues.
* To give the OHV enthusiasts in New Mexico a better understanding of the challenges and issues being faced by land managers.
* To provide OHV enthusiasts in New Mexico an understanding of agency requirements with regard to NEPA and national policy (if available).
* To help the OHV enthusiasts in New Mexico become more effective in working with the agencies, influencing the planning processes and ensuring a positive future for OHV recreation in New Mexico.

Forest Service Planning Status Updates will also be discussed for the Carson National Forest, Cibola National Forest, Gila National Forest, Lincoln National Forest, Santa Fe National Forest, and the BLM in New Mexico.

Pre-registration for the workshop is encouraged and can be done online at http://www.nmohva.org. There will be no registration fee for New Mexico Off Highway Vehicle Alliance members or for Land Managers but there will be a $10.00 fee for all others.
