DCNR (Department of Conservation & Natural Resources) is teaming up with NOHVCC (National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council) to offer a workshop on motorized recreation. The club should have someone there. So lets have some volunteers.

From the April 25 Resource:
'Motorized Recreation in Pennsylvania – Partnerships for Progress' workshop to cover OHV recreation

The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC), in conjunction with DCNR and the Pennsylvania OHV Association (PaOHVA), will present a three-day workshop that includes two days of classroom sessions and one day of field sessions to provide hands-on opportunities to apply what is learned in the classroom.  Topics will include principles of OHV recreation management; planning, operation and maintenance of sustainable trail systems; benefits of active management; economic benefits of OHV recreation; conflict resolution; effective use of volunteers; and partnership development opportunities.
