Stop Expansion of Off-Road Vehicle Use at Oregon Dunes
A proposed revision to the 1994 Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area management plan may open additional areas of the dunes to off-road vehicle use. This would appear to be "mitigation" on behalf of off-roaders for the closure of unauthorized and illegal OHV routes through areas which had been designated for non-motorized use.
Please take a moment to contact Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, Congressman Peter DeFazio, and Siuslaw National Forest Supervisor Jerry Ingersoll and let them know you are against expanding off-road vehicle areas at Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
The letter below includes the concern over expanded OHV use, along with a number of site-specific points and several strong recommendations for revised management at the Oregon Dunes. Please take a moment and sign your name to this, and if possible, pass it on to a friend or family member.
Thank you for your support for non-motorized recreation, and respect for the environment and unique resources of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area!
