Not many states include off-highway vehicle (OHV) ethics as part of their elementary and junior-high school curriculums. Montana stands out as one that does, and has for 9 years.

Each year since 2006, thousands of students have watched a 7-minute educational video titled “On The Right Trail.” It covers all the basics, educating students about riding OHVs safely, responsibly, and ethically.

New video adds ATVs and ROVs.

MILES CITY, Mont. --- The BLM is encouraging recreationists to be mindful of rules and regulations and to act responsibly when using the Glendive Short Pine Off-Highway Vehicle Area located six miles south of Glendive.

From a Report by Jim Dochnahl, Education Consultant

This was the sixth full school year of the partnership between Contractor Jim Dochnahl and the Montana Trail Vehicle Riders Association (MTVRA). This was a challenging year but through the hard work of MTVRA and Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ OHV program, funding issues were addressed and corrected. Our ethics education program reached 8,795 students during the 2011 – 2102 school year. From October to June, we visited 75 schools throughout Montana.
