Yamaha Approves 10 New GRANTs in the First Quarter of 2012
Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A.’s, OHV Access Initiative has approved 10 new projects supporting responsible, safe OHV riding and open, sustainable OHV access to trails and riding areas across the country.
The GRANTs (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation’s Trails) were awarded in the first quarter of this year, and support a variety of local, regional and national organizations.
“Yamaha received a number of quality applications this past quarter from U.S. National Forest properties seeking support for the restoration or improvement of their OHV trail systems,” says Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV and SxS marketing manager. “Public lands are a vital source of OHV trails across the country, and with dwindling budget allocations from the federal government, the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative has become an important resource to land managers across the country.”
Yamaha GRANTs Support 4,500 Miles of OHV Trails in 3rd Quarter 2011
“More than 160 Yamaha GRANTs have been awarded since the Initiative’s inception in 2008, but we want to do more,” says Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV and SxS marketing manager. “The Yamaha OHV Access Initiative has grown into the number one industry resource for the OHV community in its support of riding areas across the country, and we encourage riders and public land managers to work together to identify and submit projects for consideration of a GRANT.”
