Saving a Trail or Riding Area

You can be part of saving your favorite trail or riding area. Getting involved and caring are the first two steps. It's not as hard as you might think, and NOW is the time to do it.

1. Join: join everything you can afford to join that suits your form of recreation, and start with the national multiple use group, the BlueRibbon Coalition.
2. Advocate: become a voice for your outdoor recreation. Talk it up. Tell your neighbors. Let folks know why you love to do what you do.
3. Include Others: take your neighbors for a ride. Take a local politician for a ride. Get other folks to understand what you do by including them in some not-too-scary way; and lastly
4. Letters: write 'em. When asked by an organization or club to write a letter about something. Do it. Write a note to your congress-critter or local politician and tell them what YOU believe in.
