Off-road vehicles have been running rampant in northern Arizona for decades, tearing up archeological sites, crushing vegetation and ruining habitat for imperiled wildlife. Right now, the North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest is asking you to let it know what you think of its off-road vehicle plan.  

The Center has carefully reviewed the Forest Service plan, and we’ve made it easy for you to get involved. Join us in telling the Service that we value quiet forests and protecting wildlife habitat. Let the agency know you don't want your public lands ruined by too many unaffordable roads.  

This ranger district needs to hear from you by May 24, so please take a few minutes now to personalize the letter below and ask the Forest Service to prioritize the protection of wildlife and watersheds in its travel-management decision.
With your help, we can push back against motorized mayhem in northern Arizona.

Use the form below to send a letter to the Forest Service.
