Overview
Responsible Trails America, a project of the New Venture Fund, is dedicated to reducing the environmental degradation of public lands caused by irresponsible off-road vehicle riding. The organization works throughout the West and at the federal level to educate lawmakers, recruit diverse allies, and promote projects to mitigate damage by off-road vehicles. This grant would fund work to secure consistent fines for riders who break the law and to build support for visible identification tags for each vehicle to make it easier for law enforcement officers to identify violators.
