The Colorado Association of 4WD Clubs Land Use Committee is dedicated to the protection of public access to public lands.

Many of the member clubs of the Colorado Association have adopted roads and do volunteer projects on lands that are managed by the BLM and the Forest Service to stop the lost mileage from road closures. Through these agreements they are able to maintain public access by doing maintenance, mitigating problems related to resource damage, and by rehabilitating existing infrastructures. Through these efforts the clubs reduce impacts to the environment and support the managing agencies in keeping access available to the public. Annually the clubs document thousands of volunteer hours on their Adopt-A-Roads and volunteer projects on the public lands across Colorado.

 

Another way to influence the management of the public lands is to become involved with the Forest Service District, or BLM Resource Area near you. Many scope projects are done on the public lands each year, and your comments are important. Also, giving comments during the Forest Planning process is another important way to influence the future management of our public lands.

Lost Milage by Year

A Forest Plan is a high level document created for each National Forest. They are updated every 10 to 15 years to keep them current with the changes that take place in social interests, scientific data, and environmental concerns. Forest Plans contain Standards and Guidelines which give directions for management of the forest. Areas are also defined by a management prescription, or area description, such as wilderness, or timber harvesting. Forest Plans give direction for individual projects that are proposed on the National Forests. Participating in the planning process for our National Forests insures that your interests are met in these documents.

 

Note: The following table lists the Region 2 forests status in the Planning process. Completed documents are shaded, unshaded dates are projections of completion dates
