MD DNR ORV impact meeting
Posted: Fri Mar 11, 2011 6:07 pm
I received a letter in the mail today from the Maryland DNR. I'm not sure how many others got it also, but I thought I'd share. This may be of interest to many of us, and I plan on attending. Might be a good place/time to bring up our possible volunteer work day.
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) would like to invite
you to a meeting to discuss a recently completed draft assessment of
the environmental impacts of off-road vehicle trails on the sensitive
resource features found on DNR lands.
As an ORV stakeholder, the Department would like to share the
results of the draft Statewide Off-Road Vehicle Trail Assessment with
you and solicit your ideas on a future ORV strategy to address any
resource concerns and user needs.
The results of the study and the meeting dialogue will have a direct
impact on you as a user of public lands, so we encourage you to
attend this very important discussion.
The meeting is scheduled for March 23, 2011 from 7 PM until 9 PM.
The meeting will be held within the Natural Resource Police
conference room at Gwynnbrook WMA, 3738 Gwynnbrook Avenue,
Owings Mill, Maryland 21117. Directions to the facility can be found

Please reply to me if you plan to attend and indicate whether you will
be representing an ORV club or group. If you have any additional
questions regarding the meeting, please give me a call at (410) 260-
8412. We look forward to a productive meeting. Thank you in -
advance for your input on ORV use on DNR lands.
