The California Off-Road Vehicle Association (CORVA) (And the CORVA Foundation) is: California’s Off-Road Voice for Access.
They advocate on behalf of their membership to promote, protect, and preserve off-road recreation and automotive access on public lands throughout California.
The group is composed of off-road enthusiasts of street legal and off highway registered vehicles such as ATV’s, motorcycles, 3-wheelers, trail bikes, and dune buggies, as well as 4X4 vehicles, dual sport motorcycles, Baja buggies, and desert racers. Plus many others that use motorized access for; hunting, rockhounding, bird watching, fishing and others activities.
CORVA’s main purpose is to work with the land managers for responsible off-highway vehicular access and recreation opportunities. Secondarily, we educate our membership on the constantly changing rules and regulations and promote clean-up and trail maintenance projects.
We are very active in the political arena with federal and state land management agencies. We work closely with the State Department of Parks and Recreation, providing input to the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Program from the user’s standpoint. We provide a valuable resource to land managers in the form of dedicated OHV enthusiasts who believe in responsible vehicular access.
A portion of the budgets for California’s national forests and the public lands administered by the BLM is funded by grants from the Green Sticker Program. We work with land managers to formulate the grants and give our input about the grants to the OHMVR Program which administers them. We also review how effectively our Green Sticker money was used in each program.
We are active at all levels of the land management public process with both the BLM and the USFS. We do this by commenting on environmental documents on as many issues as possible and maintaining close relationships with personnel in the field as well as the staff.
We coordinate with other multiple use organizations ranging from snowmobiles to horse enthusiasts to protect multiple use rights from the environmental extremists. We are “dedicated to protecting our lands for the people, not from the people.”
