(Phoenix, Arizona - June 8, 2009) - Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts in Arizona have an opportunity to learn and teach responsible recreation ethics by volunteering through the OHV Ambassador program. Applications for the OHV Ambassador program must be submitted to Arizona State Parks by Monday, August 10, 2009 to be considered for the training to be held on October 24, 2009.

This program, launched in September 2007, is a partnership effort among Arizona State Parks, Arizona Game and Fish Department, Bureau of Land Management, USDA Forest Service, Arizona County Sheriffs, organized OHV groups and volunteers.

Initial training includes OHV laws and regulations, defensive driving, dirt bike and ATV courses, desert safety, radio use, communications, first aid and CPR. The three pilot locations for volunteer involvement include the Lake Pleasant area, Cave Creek area and the Florence Junction area.

Volunteers play a vital role in maintaining high-quality OHV recreation opportunities; monitoring OHV trails, roads, and facilities; and actively participating in site improvements and user outreach in cooperation with local land managers. OHV Ambassadors provide their time, energy, expertise, and personal OHVs to carry out their volunteer roles in the OHV Ambassador program.
