BLM Eagle Lake Field Office seeks public comments on OHV grant proposals

The Bureau of Land Management Eagle Lake Field Office is accepting public input on projects and management needs that would benefit off-highway vehicle recreation on public lands. The comment period will remain open through Monday, Feb. 15.

Staff at the field office will use public comments or suggestions to develop a preliminary grant application to the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division. The field office will accept public comments and suggestions by mail at BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, 2550 Riverside Drive, Susanville, CA 96130, or by email sent to Marisa Williams at

“We use these grant funds for projects and activities that improve riding and driving opportunities for our communities and visitors,” said BLM Eagle Lake Field Office Manager Emily Ryan. “We always value the suggestions from people who enjoy OHV sports on the public lands.”

Ryan said the field office plans to seek funds for maintaining and restoring trails and facilities and for law enforcement patrol at the Fort Sage and Rice Canyon OHV recreation areas. Other ideas may come from public comments and suggestions.

The OHVMR Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program supports off-highway vehicle recreation in California by providing financial assistance to cities, counties, districts, federal and state agencies, educational institutions, non-profit organizations and federally recognized Native American tribes.

Anyone interested can review and comment on grant proposals by visiting the OHVMR grants website between March 2 and May 3.
