AMA Save Our Trails Fund Ends April 1

From a press release issued by the AMA:

AMA "Save Our Trails Fund" coming to a close

Feb. 5 - The AMA "Save Our Trails" Fund is winding down, having paid out more than $76,000 to AMA District 37 for legal expenses in the District's battle to protect off-highway riding areas in California.

The "Save Our Trails" Fund was created to accept donations for District 37 (Southern California) legal battles and other efforts to protect off-highway riding areas. When the program began, the AMA pledged to match contributions dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. The fund has received more than $38,000 in donations so far. That means the AMA is committed to matching roughly $10,000 more in donations before the program ends April 1.

"AMA District 37 is working hard to stop efforts in California to shut down riding areas to off-highway motorcycles and ATVs," said AMA Western States Representative Nick Haris. "Riders in California and across the nation need to support the District's efforts to show opponents of motorized recreation that we are a united force, no matter where our riding areas come under attack."
