COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Coeur d’Alene Field Office seeks public input by January 26, 2024, on a Recreational Vehicle Fund Grant application from the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation. Requested funds would be used to replace the field office’s current off-road motor vehicle, and to purchase two off-road motorcycles. 

Off-road motor vehicles are used by field office staff for trail maintenance, monitoring of federal lands and other essential tasks. As vehicles approach the end of their lifecycle, they are replaced with the modern equivalent.  

To assist the BLM in keeping up with the growing demand for recreation opportunities in the Coeur d’Alene area, this grant would also be used to fund the purchase of two off-road motorcycles. These motorcycles allow staff to monitor recreational use of BLM-managed public lands, conduct trail maintenance and access far reaching areas more easily. 

“Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation grants play an integral role in providing recreational opportunities on public lands,” said BLM Coeur d’Alene Field Manager Ray Pease. “We are requesting funds to aid our staff in continuing to meet the needs of expanding recreational use in northern Idaho.”   

Public input may be mailed to the BLM Coeur d’Alene Field Office, Attn: Recreation Grant Comment 3232 W. Nursery Road, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83815, or emailed to

Please contact the BLM Coeur d’Alene Field Office at 208-769-5000, if you would like more information.
