Sep 08, 2016

OAI-LogoYamaha Outdoor Access Initiative awarded more than $95,000 in funds and equipment to six grant recipients in the second quarter of 2016. The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative is dedicated to those who work and play outdoors and supports off-highway vehicle (OHV) riders, as well as anyone who relies on access to land for camping, hunting, fishing, and other outdoor uses.

“Creating, expanding, protecting and improving access to land is a primary concern for outdoor enthusiasts across the country, and OHV education is an important part of how our industry fosters safe, responsible motorized recreation,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV and SxS group marketing manager. “The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative provides critical support and resources for those who commit their time and energy toward the diverse facets of access, and this quarter’s recipients are great examples of organizations working to ensure land, as well as OHV training, is available for all types of outdoor recreation.”
