The Sierra National Forest’s application has been submitted to the State and will be available for public review beginning Tuesday, March 2 at the following website: Hard copies of the application are also available by contacting Mosé Jones-Yellin at 559-297-0706 ext. 4858.  Comments on the grant application can be submitted online at the above website or by mailing to Sierra National Forest, Attn. Mosé Jones-Yellin, 1600 Tollhouse Road, Clovis, CA  93611.

The Sierra National Forest will also host an open house Tuesday, March 16th between 6pm and 8pm at the Forest Headquarters, 1600 Tollhouse Road in Clovis.  The purpose of the meeting is to provide copies of the preliminary application and discuss the proposal submitted by the Sierra National Forest.  “Without the State’s assistance, sustaining the critical balance between off highway vehicle recreation opportunities and responsible management of our natural resources would be very difficult,” stated Ed Cole, Forest Supervisor.

The OHMVR and the Sierra National Forest have maintained a successful partnership for over 25 years.  Last year, the Forest was awarded $97,000 in grant funds that funded planning and trail maintenance projects.
