Missoula, MT, July 11, 2014 – The National Forest Foundation (NFF) is pleased to announce an expanded partnership with Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII), the leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles. Polaris’ $62,000 donation to the NFF will improve motorized recreation opportunities on two existing ATV trails on the Superior National Forest in Minnesota.
The first project will expand a current effort to address erosion and user experience on the 20-year-old Big Aspen ATV Trail. In 2013, the Forest Service received funding from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, which it combined with funding the NFF received from Polaris to improve approximately two miles of trail. This year, Polaris again is supporting Big Aspen ATV Trail improvements by providing funding to complete the final mile of trail resurfacing. The Forest Service will add gravel to the trail surface which will reduce erosion, improve user experience and result in a more sustainable motorized trail system. The Big Aspen ATV Trail is located near the Iron Range OHV Recreation Area, which is managed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
