On Monday, the California Department of Parks and Recreation, Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR Division) announced its Intent to Award for the 2010/11 Grants and Cooperative Agreements grants cycle. The Friends of Jawbone is pleased to have been awarded three grants.
The first is a grant for Operations and Maintenance that will help us continue to maintain and sign the area trails in the Jawbone region. The second is a Restoration grant that will assist in our ongoing commitment to mitigate the effects of illegal OHV use in the area.
Our third grant, for Education and Safety, will be used to create iPhone and Android apps of our highly popular Friends of Jawbone OHV Trail Map. This will allow smart phone users to view their location the map and access discovery points and other information while on the trail - without the need for a cell signal!

Paul is an avid outdoor enthusiast with a love of hiking and riding. He serves as Vice President of CTUC, Friends of El Mirage and Friends of Jawbone. He is very passionate about conservation, specifically with regard to the Pacific Crest Hiking Trail. He did a great deal of work to restore and preserve this area.
