Unfortunately, some people choose to damage this place with their extreme off-road vehicles. Every year more meadows are lost to ORV damage and more riparian areas are damaged by riders who do not respect public lands. The destructive actions of a few are ruining natural resources that belong to everyone.
The Forest Service is currently deciding how to manage off-road vehicle use in the Smith National Recreation Area. Please take a moment to send a letter voicing your support for wildlands, clean water and rare plant habitat.
Tell the District Ranger that you want to protect this special place from ORV damage that could cause irreveersible damage to this sensitive ecosystem.?
