Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS) has applied for a project grant this year and needs your comments to CA-OHV on both so we can receive the grant and continue providing #dirtmagic to the public! Below are instructions in an easy, step-by-step process and the link to submit your comments in support of SBTS receiving this grant.
As far as what to say, you can be brief or you can pontificate, but the crux is to communicate how important the Downieville trails are to you and how important it is to keep these trails open for the public to use. Also mention the economic importance of the trails, for they provide critically positive economic impact to Sierra countiy.
Ideas on why to comment:
- Recreation opportunities for visitors and locals
- Creates local employment
- Creates sustainable trail systems that require less maintenance
- Keeps trails open and safe while protecting watershed
The comment period closes from March 5th to May 6th, so please provide comments before then, and spread the word! The more positive comments we receive, the better.
