WI GSTC / DNR seeks WOHVA input
Recently WOHVA was contacted by the President of the Wisconsin Governors State Trails Council to provide input regarding 4WD opportunities in WI.
Bryan met with the WI DNR today. The purpose of the meeting was to present both current state and furture opportunities for 4WD enthusiasts.
Bryan continues to be a strong proponent of all types of OHV recreation including 4WD interests.
You may recall Bryan was instumental in heading up the OHM registration program. He has also volunteered to assist us with the 4WD registration program.
Attached is a copy of the letter I forwarded on behalf of WOHVA, W4WDA and 4WD enthusiasts in general.

Treadlighly! Tread Trainer program coming soon
WOHVA is pleased to announce the addition of Treadlighly!® Tread Trainer program to our Annual OHV Enthusiast’s Workshops and Membership meeting agenda. This program will be provided on Friday April 7th 2017, registration fee is $75. Mark your calendars now, more information will follow with a complete weekend agenda. Below is information on the program.
Tread Lightly!®’s Tread Trainer™ (TT) course is an 8-hour course designed to provide a “crash course” in outdoor ethics focusing on motorized and mechanized recreation on both land and water. Participation in the course qualifies individuals to present the Tread Lightly! message to others in their state or region. Participants will work with Master Trainers or Tread Lightly! staff on understanding the role outdoor ethics play in the recreation community, learn the Tread Lightly! principles of responsible recreation and be provided with the tools to conduct workshops and coordinate community outreach.
Tread Trainers have gone a step further and have decided they want to help others learn to be responsible stewards. They have taken a Tread Trainer course and have the ability to hold informational trainings and seminars for the general public or outdoor enthusiast groups. They can also represent Tread Lightly! at events like sportsmen’s expos, OHV events and more.
A Tread Trainer’s responsibilities include:
The end of 2016 brings about many things including, the Holiday Season, property taxes are due, heating bills rise, overscheduling of events and of course the most important of all, WOHVA membership dues!
Soon all WOHVA members from the past 2 years will be receiving a renewal letter including some of the highlights from the past year and information on our upcoming Annual OHV Enthusiasts Workshops and Membership meeting along with a membership application.
You can also renew your membership online through the WOHVA Store
WOHVA is grateful for your past support and looks forward to your continued support in 2017.
