Off-Highway Vehicles Volunteer Program
Some of Southern California’s most beautiful off-highway trails are protected by the dedication of the Off-Highway Vehicles (OHV) Volunteer Program and a partnership with the Forest Service that helps ensure safe and sustainable trails for the nature-loving public. Join the Southern California Mountains Foundation Off-Highway Vehicles Volunteer Program and experience the rewards of making a difference.
“Our volunteers take action and responsibility for the protection of our natural resources to help ensure sustainability, and in turn, the Forest Service gains a presence in the field, promoting and dispensing vital messaging and education to the public.” Rick Lavello, Program Manager

What’s Happening with the OHV Program
Education & Outreach
The OHV Program reaches out to Off-Highway Vehicle enthusiasts wherever they are: on the trails where they recreate, in the showrooms where their love affair begins, and even in the classrooms where they are first introduced.
In cooperation with the San Bernardino National Forest, we work annually to update an educational guide for OHV enthusiasts of every level to promote responsible recreation on the right trails when recreating in the Forest.
Volunteers Educate the Public
The survival of some of Southern California’s most beautiful off-highway trails is protected by the dedication of a network of volunteers. These OHV enthusiasts partner with the Mountains Foundation and the U.S. Forest Service to help ensure safe and sustainable trails for the nature-loving public.
