For quarter 2, 2017 we will be supporting: Pine Nut Mountain Trails Association.
The Pine Nut Mountains Trails Association (PNMTA) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1998 in response to the threat of losing access to our public lands; in and around the Carson Valley. (Nevada)
The PNMTA has been working with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and other government agencies ever since to protect our rights to enjoy our beautiful public lands. The PNMTA represents all types of recreational users. Their members include: dirt bike enthusiasts, 4-wheelers, bicyclists, Equestrians, Hunters, and any person that is interested in preserving public lands for the public.
Taking care of the land is a key part of their strategy. No other group has done as much to improve the environment in the Pine Nut Mountains and surrounding area. The PNMTA has organized annual cleanups and trail projects resulting in the removal of thousands of cubic yards of trash and dozens of abandoned vehicles. The PNMTA has also completed trail improvement projects, including signing trails and creating official staging areas.
The PNMTA organizes many different activities to keep everyone connected. They have picnics, camping trips, and day trips scheduled throughout the year. Check out their Face Book Page for the latest information on upcoming events.

We are pleased to announce that we will be supporting The Stewards Of The Sequoia for quarter 1, 2017.
Stewards of the Sequoia (SOS) have been fighting hard and winning to stop trail closures. Since 2004 they continue to be the largest on the ground volunteer organization in the Sequoia National Forest. Stewards work with agencies proactively to ensure trails remain open and even build new trails. More recently Stewards of the Sequoia initiated litigation to Stop the PCT Land Grab from eliminating motorized single track trails. SOS has put together a great video on the subject which you can view by clicking here.
Stewards of the Sequoia is funded by donations from riders who want to do something meaningful to stop trail closures. You can make a tax deductible donation by clicking here.

For our second land use advocacy group to support we have selected:
The TPA will act as an advocate of the sport and take the necessary action to insure that the USFS and BLM allocate to trail riding a fair and equitable percentage of access to public lands.
