2016 Mora Enduro PostponedNEWS FLASH

The 59th Mora Enduro has been cancelled due to the recent flooding. The road to the start of the event has been completely washed out and is temorarily closed. The Minnesota DNR is working on getting the road repaired but they are unsure when they will be able to secure funding. We have been unable to arrange for an alternate date being this far into the season and considering the district schedules and the fast approaching hunting seasons.

We want to thank all the trail workers who have put so much effort into preparing the trails for this event. This year extensive work was done re-routing trail to more sustainable areas and fabricating bridges where necessary to provide for an epic event, but Mother Nature had other plans.


Kabetogama State Forest MN DNRKabetogama State Forest Trails will be the focus of MN DNR Open House in Orr

Anyone interested in trail use and motorized recreation in Kabetogama State Forest in St. Louis County is encouraged to attend an open house Wednesday, August 3, 2016, 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the American Legion, 4543 U.S. Highway 53 in Orr, the Department of Natural Resources said.

The open house will provide an opportunity to submit comments and suggestions about trail use in Kabetogama State Forest. DNR staff will be available to answer questions and provide maps of existing trails.

Between 2003-2008, the DNR inventoried all routs and designated trails within state forests. This current project will reevaluate the designations made during the initial review. Changes could include redefining how trails can be used, determining options for motorized trail routs and trail connections, closing unsustainable trails, designating "areas with limitations" during hunting and trapping activities, and developing new hunter walking trails.

Written comments may be submitted to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us or by mail to Joe Unger, DNR Parks and Trails, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through August 17, 2016. Changes to state forest trail designations must be made by commissioner's order and published in the State Register.


Support Legislation to Quantify the Economic Impact of Recreation

Send an Email in Support of S. 2219 and H.R. 4665

Companion bills, S. 2219 and H.R. 4665, known as the Outdoor REC (Recreation's Economic Contributions) Act have been introduced in the U.S. Congress and are starting to move. The bills would require the Secretary of Commerce in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor and in consultation with federal land management agencies to assess and analyze the outdoor recreation economy of the United States and the effects attributable to it on the overall U.S. economy. The assessment may consider employment, sales, contributions to travel and tourism, and other appropriate contributing components of the outdoor recreation economy.

TAKE ACTION NOW

A private 2012 study found that outdoor recreation generates $646 billion in consumer spending each year and supports 6.1 million jobs. This study was conducted by the Outdoor Industry Association in cooperation with several partners. The motorized recreation industry funded the motorized portion of the study which found that approximately $257 billion or nearly 40% of the total $646 billion in economic impact is derived from motorized recreation.This is important information for policy makers and agency personnel as they make important land use decisions about how to best provide for responsible multiple uses that meet the needs of their local communities.

It is important that key decision makers hear from OHV enthusiasts the importance of the impact of motorized recreation. Take action and send a letter to your Members of Congress in support of the legislation and highlight the importance of motorized recreation. The TAKE ACTION NOW link will take you to the ARRA web site and a suggested email already written for you and ready to add your own thoughts.
