The Pine Nut Mountains Trail Association in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management Sierra Front Field Office, Nevada Offroad Association and Tread Lightly! held a trail stewardship, and trash clean-up day at the Johnson Lane Off Highway Vehicle staging area in Minden on Oct. 9.
This event is an annual tradition for the 23-year-old club, and Saturday’s work successfully filled a 40-yard dumpster with general litter, tires and dumped home furniture.
This event is funded by in part by the Nevada Off Highway Grant program and has received significant material support from Tread Lightly!, the nation’s leading organization for promoting responsible off-road recreation through stewardship, education, and communication.
“It is events like these that allow the OHV community to partner with others that also enjoy the wide-open Public Lands here in Nevada fostering a cooperative relationship throughout the rest of the year.” said Nevada Offroad Association Executive Director Mathew Giltner. “Without the support of groups like Tread Lightly! and their positive stewardship message of responsible offroad recreation, and clubs like PNMTA, protecting your right to recreate on your Public Lands, accessing Nevada’s backcountry would become increasingly difficult, so please, join a club and let your voice be heard”.
