Imperial Sand Dunes Subgroup Members Selected

The California Desert Advisory Council (DAC) has selected two members for the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA) subgroup.  They are Tom Acuna, representing California off-highway vehicle (CA OHV) interests; and Ed Stovin, representing OHV Organizations. Other current subgroup members and the interests they represent are: Don Wharton, Local Community; Bob Ham, Imperial County; Jim Bramham, CA OHV interests; Lee Banning, Arizona OHV interests; and Chuck Hattaway, OHV Organizations.

Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, input from the subgroup will be presented directly to the DAC for its deliberation and consideration.  The DAC, in turn, in its advisory capacity, develops recommendations for the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) California Desert District manager concerning use, classification, retention, disposal, or other aspects of public land planning and management in the public interest.

The subgroup will meet at least three times per year, once before the recreation season, once during the season, and once after the season.  Other meetings may be called as required.  All meetings are open to the public.  For further information, including dates and locations of scheduled meetings, please visit the subgroup's website:
