Trail Host Training - 2019
Time & Location
About The Event
BOAR will be providing a Trail Host training class on December 14th. The class is free, and those who complete the class will become Trail Hosts with the DNR.
The Trail Host program is funded by the Forest Service, BLM, and DNR with Trail Hosts reporting directly to a DNR OHV specialist.
An official definition is "An individual or group, who act as a volunteer presence on a trail or trailhead of their choice. Hosts are responsible for educating the public about each aspect of OHV recreation by providing information on educational courses, safe riding habits,Tread Lightly! principles, and more. This is accomplished through interacting with the public while riding a trail or setting up a table at a trailhead. Both include the use of educational materials (provided to you)."
The training would go over the basics of tread lightly, tips for "difficult" end user interactions, information on how to work with local land agencies, reporting trail issues, and more. If you have been wheeling long, much of it will be a refresher but still be of value.
*Very Important* - All adults will need to bring a form of government ID such as drivers license, concealed carry permit, etc... This is needed to check-in at the front desk. Children accompanied by an adult do not need ID.
