BLM to Begin Improvement Work at Rice Canyon OHV Area

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has issued a press release asking visitors to be careful around work areas as cleanup and improvement work begins Saturday, May 19, at the Rice Canyon OHV Recreation Area east of Susanville in northern CA.

BLM states that crews will be working through the early summer with a major focus on construction of a new loop trail, a loading ramp, picnic sites and shade structures. BLM has been working since last year to improve the area by building new trails for OHVs with much of the work funded through the CA State OHV Program, which is administered by the CA OHV Recreation Division.

If you would like to volunteer to help with improvement projects, BLM asks anyone interested to call the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office at (530) 257-0456 or Marisa Williams, who is a BLM recreation planner, at (530) 252-5303.
