Commissioners say 'thanks' to Western Slope ATV Association

Members of the Western Slope ATV Association accept a Certificate of Appreciation Monday, May 4, 2015, from the Mesa County Commissioners. Commissioner John Justman, far left, is pictured here.
The Mesa County Commissioners this morning presented a Certificate of Appreciation to the Western Slope ATV Association.

The gesture was in appreciation of the many volunteer services the association provides for the community.

As an example of the group's contributions:

  • In 2014, the association contributed more than 4,500 volunteer hours on local forest service lands and 2,000 hours on local BLM lands. Volunteers not only picked up a huge amount of trash, but they also maintained a wide variety of trails, making them more sustainable and safer for all user groups.
  • In 2014, the group also put in a 60-foot-long trail bridge nine miles south of Vega State Park using all volunteer labor and equipment.
  • Some members also volunteer for the Mesa County Sheriff's Office to help with Search and Rescue efforts.
