OHV Kiosk ribbon cutting

Community member Peggy Kennedy and BLM Barstow Resource Chief Mickey Quillman cut the ribbon for an Off-Highway Vehicle informational kiosk in Landers.

Informational maps for off-highway vehicle riders were installed in kiosks in Landers and Wonder Valley on Wednesday. A small group gathered on the west side of Highway 247 at Reche Road in Landers to watch BLM Rangers fasten maps to both sides of a structure erected for the purpose. The maps are keyed to show where OHVs are allowed, and where they are not. Victoria Fuller of Community ORV Watch explained the purpose of the display: “For the responsible riders, this tells people where to go.” Phil Klasky, also of Community ORV Watch, emphasized the extent of designated trails and open land legitimately available for OHV recreational riders: “Johnson Valley up here—largest open off-road vehicle area in the entire nation.” Klasky thanked the BLM, represented by Mickey Quillman, (the chief resource officer in the Barstow office), and Leslie Riley, (the acting Regional Branch Chief for the area), for its efforts in creating the display and kiosks. Following a ribbon-cutting ceremony, BLM rangers Art Basulto and Miguel Mejia headed off to Wonder Valley to put up a similar display at Old Dale Road.
