Letter being mailed out:

In April 2013, the New Jersey Park Service approved a plan to limit enduro clubs to pre-approved routes for their permitted dirt-bike racing events held on state land. These routes consist of plowed firebreaks, unimproved sand roads and improved roads. The State Park Service created this plan to deal with the costly management of recreation permits, limit damage to natural resources, and reduce the number of new trails created throughout state forests.

 

Thank you to all the people who made calls to the Governor's Office early this summer in support of this plan. Now New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) needs to hear from you.

 

Although the DEP agreed with this plan, enduro clubs are pushing back and asking them to reverse their decision. The DEP needs to hear from you - the other users of the state parks and forests. Tell them that you support limiting enduros to a sub-set of trails, so that the rest of the public can enjoy the state's natural resources.

 

Motorized recreation creates many problems in state forests such as spreading invasive species, disturbing wildlife, destroying wetlands, increasing soil erosion, destroying native plants, and it can interfere with the ability of other people to enjoy state parks and forests. It is time to limit this damage to our public resource.

 

Enduro Clubs still get to enjoy hundreds of miles of trails on public land under the new plan and can continue holding events on private land. This approach is a significant improvement over the last 30 years of costly, ineffective management. 

 

 

PLEASE CALL or EMAIL TODAY TO LET COMMISSIONER MARTIN KNOW THAT YOU SUPPORT THE STATE PARK SERVICE PLANS FOR MANAGING ENDURO EVENTS ON STATE LAND!
