OHV Ambassadors


You can be an OHV Ambassador if you...enjoy the dunes, like talking to others, understand the value of OHV safety and stewardship, are interested in educating fellow duners about responsible OHV use.  More than just a ride.  It's a matter of pride.  Graphic:  BLM


What it is...

The off-highway vehicle (OHV) Ambassador Program is a volunteer opportunity that provides a way for private citizens to work with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in the El Centro Field Office to promote responsible OHV recreation on public lands. These volunteers contribute their time, experience, and local knowledge of OHV areas in the El Centro Resource Area in groups of two or more on motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), utility vehicles (UTVs); or 4x4 vehicles; conducting special projects (e.g., outreach events, clean-ups, kiosk maintenance or installation), and distributing informational material at high visitation OHV sites. Through these efforts, volunteers provide a positive image of their recreation activity, and identify resource issues to enhance OHV recreation on public land. OHV Ambassadors receive training and serve as a point of contact for other OHV visitors to obtain helpful information about the areas they ride.
