Members of the Centerville Boy Scout Troop 719 and Moab’s Friends For Wheelin’ Jeep club pose after working last month to help repair erosion damage created by unauthorized off-trail vehicle use near the popular Steelbender off-road trail. On June 17, the two groups teamed up to rake out tracks on the steep hillside and build a fence to help keep users on the designated trail and reduce damage to vegetation and soils, BLM officials say. Members of Moab Friends For Wheelin’ had noticed the tracks during a recent off-road event and contacted the BLM asking if they could help, “showing a terrific sense of public lands stewardship and pride in our area,” BLM spokesperson Lisa Bryant said. “BLM applauds the initiative and community service Friends For Wheelin’ demonstrated in this effort. They noticed resource damage created by other users and contacted BLM about helping,” Bryant added. “They enlisted the help of some boy scouts, fostering a sense of pride in stewardship and connection to public lands. BLM loves and appreciates our volunteers!”                     Courtesy photo
