The last hearings on the ROA regions throughout the state are now over and the info is being compiled.  I have to say I am very impressed with those who attended the various hearings throughout the state!  You definitely made a difference in educating those at these meetings about four wheel driving and the need for trails and a park in Wisconsin!  Also, on the reverse many of us also got educated on the DNR’s thoughts and suggestions!!

For those who have not as of yet submitted input on the last two regions please do soon!!  The info must be submitted by January 2!!  There is a quick survey that you can do and please as before send on to friends and whomever may be interested and that includes those out of  state!  Also, you can make copies of the questionnaire hard copy and you can take to your club meeting and hand them out for them to fill out and even send them all in one envelope! Below you will find the link to access the site.

Also, it is time to for you to recap your thoughts regarding access around the whole state and a park to Cameron Bump whose e-mail you will also find in the link below.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
