Education is one of the primary functions of the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council. Our organization offers a wide variety of programs, many of which can be custom-designed for specific purposes and locales.
NOHVCC Workshops bring nationally-recognized experts to your location to address your specific local needs. The workshops incorporate both indoor and outdoor sessions, including speakers, field demonstrations, and hands-on activities designed to provide you with the tools you need to manage your OHV program effectively.
If you don't have the resources to bring the NOHVCC team to your location, you can still get much of the information that is presented at the OHV Management and US Forest Service Travel Management Rule workshops by attending a webinar. The webinar sessions range from explaining the US Forest Service Planning Process and how to work with a Land Manager to explaining who an OHV recreationist is and how to design a sustainable trail where they will want to stay on the trail. You get the benefit of interacting with a presenter without the need to travel.
Our videos take the information from our workshop and webinar series and put it into video format. The information is broken down into several videos that can be either ordered as a DVD or viewed on-line at a time that is convenient for you.
An interactive youth program that features trail ethics and safety messages in a fun manner. The books, posters and CD-ROMs are available to any OHV group, dealer, or land management organization that wishes to utilize it at their events or dealerships.
