This presentation will provide a status update on the BLM’s progress since the year 2000 (the year the BLM’s OHV Strategy was published, followed by the Mountain Bicycling Strategy) toward its goal of “Establishing a long-term, sustainable, multimodal transportation system for public access to and across BLM lands.” A panel of two BLM experts will present information of policy, planning, and education related to travel management as well as highlight success stories from around the nation.
