OHMVR Division Staff Attends 2013 International Sportsmen's Expo

California State Parks, Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division, attended the 2013 International Sportsmen’s Expo, January 10–13 at Cal Expo. The event provided the perfect opportunity to educate the outdoor recreating population not traditionally associated with off-highway vehicles. Key educational components included:

  • the importance of safe and responsible motorized recreation when accessing non-motorized activities, such as fishing and hunting, and
  • the role of the OHMVR Division regarding off-highway vehicle recreation, as well as the protection of natural and cultural resources throughout the state.

This was the first time the OHMVR Division had a presence at the annual event, which just completed its 26th year.  The booth featured camo-clad mannequins displaying appropriate riding gear; banners showcasing the Division’s mission, statewide OHV opportunities, and social media pages; various Tread Lightly!® and Division produced literature; and, the most popular features, the taxidermy coyote and skunk.

Over 1,400 quality contacts were made and staff are looking forward to building upon this success in 2014.
