Each Year the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) recognizes those in the off-highway community who go above and beyond in their work in promoting a “Positive Future for OHV Recreation.”

This year the NOHVCC presented Friends of Jawbone’s own Ed Waldheim with the NOHVCC Perseverance Award. This award is presented to those who have persistently and professionally worked throughout the years to help create a positive future for OHV. For nearly 40 years Ed has been a tireless advocate for OHV Recreation, founding numerous “Friends” groups to support OHV Recreation, helping to triple the membership for the California Off-Road Vehicle Association (CORVA), serving on the California OHV Recreation Commission and helping to bring in over a million dollars in Federal Recreational Trail Program grants to benefit Southern California riding opportunities.

To see Ed’s impact on recreational opportunities one need only visit Jawbone Canyon. Every vault toilet, every campfire ring, even the Jawbone Station visitors center has Ed’s name and efforts behind them. So Congratulations to Ed Waldheim on this most recent achievement. We can’t wait to see what his next big project will be.
