The Eastern San Diego County OHV Unauthorized Routes Project is located in two discreet areas: Buck Canyon near the community of Ranchita; and McCain Valley near the community of Boulevard. The Project would restore unauthorized routes used by OHVs in both areas including OHV trails where there are no designated routes and trails designated for non-motorized recreation that are used by OHVs. Restoration of unauthorized routes would protect natural and cultural resources and block ongoing OHV access into designated wilderness, riparian areas, endangered species habitat, and other sensitive areas.

The preliminary grant application is available on the OHMVRD’s website for review and comment from Tuesday, March 8, 2016 through 5pm Monday, April 4, 2016. The OHMVRD website provides detailed instructions on how to view the grant application and submit comments. Note that comments must be submitted by email to both the OHMVRD and TCLC. Comments to TCLC should be submitted to David Hogan at director@chaparralconservancy.org.

For more information, please contact TCLC Director David Hogan at 619 756-3864 or director@chaparralconservancy.org.
