Recreation Groups File Motion to Intervene in Clear Creek Lawsuit

SAN JOSE, CA (February 10, 2005) -- Trail access groups filed a notice and motion to intervene in a lawsuit regarding efforts by green groups to ban off-highway vehicle use in the Clear Creek Management Area (CCMA) near Coalinga, California. CCMA is a destination recreation area that is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

The intervention was filed today in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District in California. The groups petitioning the court include the Salinas Ramblers Motorcycle Club, American Motorcyclists Association District 36, the California Off-Road Vehicle Association, the California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, the Off-Road Business Association, and the BlueRibbon Coalition, which recently began fundraising efforts.

"I feel it is important for recreation interests to weigh in and strongly defend responsible recreation at CCMA. Our member clubs have a good record and working with the agency on mutual resource management goals and we intend to build our case on that foundation," Turcke concludes.
