Sourcecast Audio: Ochoco Controversy - Proposed OHV trail

Posted By on Wed, Apr 6, 2016 at 2:25 PM

The US Forest Service is nearing a decision to build a 130-mile off highway vehicle trail system in the Ochoco National Forest.  The proposal has been met with much controversy and opposition by conservation groups worried about habitat damage. Below are pictures from McKay Creek where OHV's have done much riparian damage to habitat.  In the Sourcecast below, we explore the issue with Sarah Cuddy of Oregon Wild, Richard Nelson of the Oregon Hunters Association, and Larry Ulrich of the Ochoco Trail Rider's Association.  You can also read about the proposal online and in print in the Source Weekly.
