By Dave Halsey, NOHVCC Contributing Writer

Some of the best places to promote safe, responsible motorized recreation are at non-motorized outdoor events.

Last month, for example, Jason West set up Utah’s safety education trailer at the annual Paddlefest at Red Fleet State Park. Hundreds of people who came to paddle canoes, kayaks and paddleboards stopped by to visit. “We had over 500 visitors at the trailer, and over 2500 participants at the entire event,” said West, Outdoor Recreation Planner with the Vernal Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

BLM and Other Federal, State Agencies Balance Recreation Opportunities with Habitat Needs

(DILLON, Mont.) – Officials from the Bureau of Land Management and other federal and state agencies say they are concerned about trying to balance recreational opportunities while maintaining the integrity of soil, water, vegetation and wildlife habitat.

Recent input from adjacent landowners and various land user groups (such as, permit holders and hunters) indicates this balance is not being met on public lands in southwest Montana and resource damage is occurring due to unauthorized motorized recreational use.

“Unauthorized motorized travel is impacting hunting opportunities, eliminating big game security, causing soil erosion and increasing noxious weed spread,” said Cornie Hudson, manager of the BLM’s Dillon Field Office.  “The use of closed routes or creating new routes also detracts from the enjoyment of these areas by non-motorized public land users.”

To this end, the Dillon Field Office, the U.S. Forest Service Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and private landowners are working together to improve compliance with travel management regulations in Southwest Montana.
