Be sure to share this information with your family and friends - anyone who rides an OHV anywhere in the province of Alberta.
April 19, 2017 is the Deadline
for feedback on the Castle Park Draft Plan.
Be Informed. Get Engaged. TAKE ACTION!
The Government of Alberta is currently enacting the biggest change to land use in the province in 30 years. Quite likely, it will impose a significant reduction or the complete elimination of motorized recreation in our parks and public lands. While current efforts are focused on the Castle area, we anticipate the entire Eastern Slopes to be similarly impacted.

Your input is still encouraged and important; ensure your family and friends participate as well. 

Send in your comments, suggestions and concerns through the government's online survey, or by emailing or mailing your feedback to Alberta Environment and Parks. Details can be found at this link:

We cannot become complacent, we must remain focused on preserving and protecting everyone's opportunity to enjoy the province's natural landscape.

AOHVA Member Club Volunteers put in countless hours maintaining trails and building infrastructure to protect the environment.
 AOHVA Member Clubs at Work 

Many of the riding areas enjoyed by OHV users today would not exist without the efforts of AOHVA Member Clubs and their volunteers. Each year, clubs conduct ongoing trail maintenance including, but not limited to, removal of blow down, erosion control, installation of muskeg mats and signage posting.

All OHV riders and their families are encouraged to join a club.
Club membership offers opportunities for recreation, enjoyment, development, and contribution.
