Thanks for coming to the club meeting last night. I don't know why it was not received better. I guess a lot of the members are a little leery. I am going to try to make the training tomorrow and I know at least two others from the club are going too.

No worries! I know that there are alot of changes to the OHV community right now. All this new info can be overwhelming. I also know that I was not exceptionally clear in some of my answers. I will be able to clear up any questions about the OHV permits at the training.

Thanks everyone that has made it to a session so far!
If you want to protect the trails in CO, this is the easiest way for you to make a difference. Don't wait for someone else to do it. YOU are already on the trails, help us identify and rectify small issues before they get to the point of endangering the system.

BOULDER TRAINING IS TOMORROW (Aug 25).

We've been getting a great Jeep turnout, but as always, need more folks to help us. Just a few weekends ago, we helped pull an abandoned Subaru off a trail. You may have seen it on Jalopnik or Autoblog

Training will last a little over an hour, but after that it will only take you a few seconds to document any trail issues you see. Here is the most recent training times:

Boulder- September 20th, 7pm. - Meadows Library Branch (4800 Baseline Rd. Boulder, CO 80303)
Longmont - September 27th, 6:30pm - Longmont Library (409 4th Avenue Longmont, CO 80501)
Colorado Springs - September 29th, 7pm - Fire Station 8 (3737 Airport Rd Colorado Springs, CO 80910)
Littleton - October 2 (Sunday), 3:30- Koelbel Library (5955 South Holly Street, Littleton, CO)
LIttleton - October 3, 630pm- Southglenn Library (6972 South Vine Street, Littleton, CO)

A couple hours of your time. You aren't committed to anything so if it doesn't sit well with you, all you're out is an evening of training. I recommend it

Quick Update:

The Colorado Trail Patrol is looking forward to another season of assisting the USDA Forest Service, Colorado State Parks and Wildlife, and the Bureau of Land Management. Everyone within the OHV community can participate in this easy and fun system built to help assist local trail maintenance and land management.

The Colorado Trail Patrol asks volunteers to log the trails they travel and document any positive and negative issues they may come across. Reports get sorted and go directly to recreation managers, planners and trail crews depending on the situation. We then work with agency staff to determine and organize an OHV-friendly solution if an issue was reported. Districts and field offices are also informed about trail systems that are in good condition too, allowing agency staff to know that the implemented management policies are working well.

The creation of a statewide network of Patrollers will allow us to notify the agencies about small issues quickly and thus prevent damage from continuing. Quick identification of maintenance needs helps direct resources and allow for issues of immediate need to be addressed.

Once volunteers are trained, they are asked to keep doing what they love…enjoying the trails of Colorado. Their normal routines are only changed by taking a few minutes to submit a trip report into the database including photos, where they traveled, and any descriptions after they get home from the ride. Colorado Trail Patrol staff then ensures the information gets to the proper personnel within the Forest Service, Colorado State Parks and Wildlife, or the Bureau of Land Management .

Trainings are held all around the state for those interested in becoming CTP volunteers. To see the complete list of upcoming training sessions, please visit the Stay the Trail Calendar (http://staythetrail.org/calendar.php) or find the Colorado Trail Patrol on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ColoradoTrailPatrol).

Stay The Trail Ambassadors

MAJOR PROGRAM UPDATE



Over the years, Stay The Trail has united the Colorado OHV community behind the ethics of responsible trail use. Now, those dedicated enthusiasts will have the opportunity to participate in sharing that ethic with other trail users and a calendar of trail events they can assist with.

Stay The Trail Ambassadors are encouraged to Ride, Educate, Monitor, and Maintain.

The program builds off of the existing support OHV enthusiasts have shown for the Colorado Trail Patrol. For new volunteers, we hold online training sessions every few weeks. Check our online calendar for the next upcoming time. The next one will be Sept 25th.

Our new website is: http://staythetrailambassadors.org/

Ride
Our volunteers are encouraged to keep doing what they love, enjoying Colorado’s extensive OHV trails. Colorado’s OHV community’s intense enthusiasm is what drives this program. We want to be good examples to the other folks who we meet on the trail.

Educate
Being role models while they are out on the trails is the best way to reinforce responsible trail ethics with other enthusiasts. Volunteers are prepared and encouraged to speak with other enthusiast’s they meet on the trail regarding responsible OHV use. Peer-to-peer reinforcement is crucial in cultivating a statewide culture of stewardship. Stay The Trail educational material will be provided for volunteers to carry with them. When you meet someone on the trail or trailhead, it is always a teachable moment.

One of our goals is to use the sense of camaraderie that occurs on the trail as a gateway to quickly introduce fellow trail enthusiasts to Stay The Trail and encourage them to follow the common OHV etiquette. Our Ambassadors are prepared and equipped to effectively turn these friendly trail encounters into opportunities to share the importance of responsible OHV trail use. Even just the friendly offer of sticker, or a OHV Opportunity Map can be effective in planting the seed of interest and responsibility in their mind.



That is why our Ambassadors are sent packets containing all our different educational brochures, Stay The Trail stickers, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife OHV Grant info.

Monitor
Trail conditions change on a weekly basis. Volunteers have access to an online reporting system where they can upload photos and GPS waypoints of maintenance and signage issues. Active monitoring quickly alerts land managers to issues in an effort to prevent an issue from becoming something larger that can jeopardize a trail’s sustainability.

Maintain
Join other enthusiasts as we assist land management agencies perform needed maintenance projects. Our calendar will be a hub of information concerning all types of OHV trail projects that need more manpower. Stay The Trail staff will also be organizing unique trail clean-up events and responding to situations that need immediate assistance. At the moment, there are 5 Stewardship Runs planned for the remaining portion of September.
