Volunteers have been an integral part of the OHMVR Program since its inception 40 years ago. Today, there are volunteer programs at each district within the Division. Dedicated staff, working within established policies and guidelines, have developed a well-managed and sustainable volunteer program. This program will continue to grow with the needs of the State Vehicular Recreation Areas (SVRAs) and the off-highway vehicle (OHV) community.

The OHMVR volunteer program has grown consistently throughout the years. In 2002, the Division reported a total of 275 volunteers. In 2011, that number had increased to 1,156 volunteers. Last year we saw continued growth of the program with an increase to 1,343 volunteers. Our committed volunteers have assisted in various program areas including: Administration, Campgrounds, Interpretation & Education, Maintenance, All-Terrain Vehicle Safety InstituteSM  (ASI) & Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Training, Public Safety, Natural & Cultural Resource Management, Outreach, and Special Events. Volunteers are valued and critical members of the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division.
