The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) released the final environmental reviews for proposed land use plans that will help conserve greater sage-grouse habitat and support sustainable economic development on portions of public lands in 10 states across the West.

BlueRibbon Coalition is leading a action group of OHV interests and will be reviewing the Proposed Plans for each of the 10 states and urges you to do the same.

A very quick read on the plan(s) appears to show the document(s) do not appear to severely impact OHV recreation at this stage of the planning process. However, OHV recreation could be impacted in the subsequent implementation of travel planning processes. It will be important for OHV to be engaged in this and future planning efforts.

BlueRibbon Coalition will continue to review the documents. Please feel free to weigh in with your own views and/or analysis.
