Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative Grants More Than $130,000 in 2nd Quarter

Projects funded this past quarter support opportunities for a variety of off-highway vehicle enthusiasts for outdoor recreation enjoyment.

Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, the powersports leader in supporting outdoor recreation, announced that the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative awarded more than $130,000 in funds and equipment to 11 grant applicants in the second quarter of 2018.

In the past decade, the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative granted more than $3.5 million supporting the program’s mission of guaranteeing responsible access to land for outdoor recreation, staking a clear claim in the powersports industry as the unprecedented leader in supporting those who work and play outdoors. Projects funded this past quarter support opportunities for a variety of off-highway vehicle enthusiasts, including those using ATVs, side-by-side vehicles, motorcycles and snowmobiles for outdoor recreation enjoyment.

“Now 10 years strong, the Outdoor Access Initiative continues to be a resource for all outdoor enthusiasts in the fight to preserve access,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV / SxS group marketing manager. “Whatever you ride, however you hunt, camp or enjoy the outdoors, if there’s no access, there’s no recreation. Which is why inclusive projects – those serving the needs of many different outdoor and motorized recreationists – get our attention.”

The recent applications were particularly diverse and included trail maintenance projects, statewide OHV mapping, education and land stewardship initiatives, and research supporting responsible motorized recreation in wildlife habitat.

As the powersports industry’s leading land access advocate protecting the interests of those who work and play outdoors, OAI supports off-highway vehicle riders, as well as those who rely on land access to camp, hunt, fish, farm and more. The latest Yamaha OAI grant recipients are:

• Balsam Trail Blazers – Itasca County, MN
• Great Basin Institute – Reno, NV
• Great Lot Sportsman’s Club Corp. – Oneida County, NY
• Indian Creek Valley ATV Club, Fayette County, PA
• National FFA
• North Country ATV – North Stratford, NH
• Stay the Trail Education and Stewardship Alliance – Colorado
• Tri-County ATV Recreation & Rescue Association – Heilwood, PA
• Jack H. Berryman Institute, Utah State University
• Vermont Association of Snow Travelers
• Westcore, Inc. – Montrose, CO
