Bi-State-Sage-Grouse-Decision-Off-Road-6-1-16BOISE, ID — Sharetrails.org/BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC), a national trail-based recreation group, recently slammed the decisions that would severely restrict off-highway vehicle (OHV) events and trail improvements in many areas in eastern California and Nevada.  The changes, in the name of sage grouse management, were demanded by a handful of preservationist special interest groups.

Some of the many historic OHV routes in the Pine Nut Mountains BRC’s concerns focus on final decisions announced late last week related to the Greater Sage-grouse Bi-State Distinct Population Segment (DPS), involving public lands in Nevada and eastern California.  The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Plan amendment includes approximately 426,809 acres of bi-state DPS habitat managed by the Forest Service.  The BLM’s Nevada California Greater Sage-Grouse Bi-State Distinct Population Segment Land Use Plan Amendment (LUPA)/Record of Decision (ROD) includes about 280,000 acres of public land located in Douglas, Esmeralda, Lyon, and Mineral counties in Nevada and Alpine and Mono Counties in California.
