The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish has scheduled a public meeting of the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Advisory Board for Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be held virtually on the OHV website.

The Department’s Off-Highway Vehicle Program has an annual budget of $795,100.00 funded by revenue generated from the Trail Safety Fund. The OHV Act required the creation of the Trail Safety Fund, which generates revenue from OHV registration fees.

- One landowner living near a national forest or Bureau of Land Management property that is used extensively for recreational off-highway vehicle activity;
- One producer or one grazing permittee on public lands from the farming or livestock industry;
- One person from the off-highway motor vehicle industry;
- One off-highway motor vehicle user;
