Thanks to the support of our paying members, Offroad Passport has been able to maintain annual associate memberships with the Blue Ribbon Coalition and TreadLightly! for a number of years. Last year, while preparing for the trip to Sand Hollow, Offroad Passport became a member club of the Utah Public Lands Alliance, and this month we purchased a club membership with the CAL4Wheel. We want you to know that a lot of thought went into spending your money on these memberships. We selected organizations that we feel have the most positive impact on OHV in the constant battle to maintain access to public lands. We encourage you to check out their websites and learn more about what they are doing and how you can help. Blue Ribbon Coalition (www.sharetrails.org) - Over 25 years of advocacy and legal representation, BRC has been a champion against the closure of our public lands. They have a proven track record of fighting 'the endless stream of litigation by anti-access' proponents. TreadLightly! (www.treadlightly.org) - The goal at TreadLightly! is to balance the needs of people who enjoy outdoor recreation with the need to maintain healthy ecosystems. They offer Tread Training and Respected Access Programs to teach users of public lands how to 'leave no trace', and head up many Restoration Projects that help keep our recreation areas open. Offroad Passport co-founder Kristoffer Smith is a Master Tread Lightly! Trainer. The Tread Lightly! website is a wonderful resource of programs, tips, and online courses that they offer to help you learn Tread Lightly! principles. Utah Public Lands Alliance (UPLA) (www.upla.com) - UPLA strives to preserve Utah's public lands for all to enjoy and use by organizing projects that protect and enhance our land to make it more enjoyable for everyone. We watch closely any Legislation that might restrict our use of the lands and encourage legislation that preserves it. We also hold special events that encourage people get out, have fun and enjoy this beautiful land that surrounds us. Cal4Wheel (California Four Wheel Drive Association) (www.cal4wheel.com) - Since 1959, this non-profit organization has actively promoted the advancement of vehicle oriented outdoor recreation. Today, the association represents over 8,000 members and 160 member clubs. It is the largest organization of its type in California and represents owners of all makes and models of 4WD vehicles, as well as non-owners who support responsible vehicle-oriented recreation.
