Jody Phillips talks about Collaboration at OR Dunes NRA
OR DUNES CASE STUDY/VIDEO - COLLABORATION NOT CLOSURE IS KEY TO SUCCESS AT OCEANO
The Oceano Dunes Access Alliance (ODAA) believes the newly released 7 minute video from Save the Riders Dunes and www.SaveOregonDunes.org can and should be reviewed by government agencies tasked with managing the Oceano Dunes SVRA for high quality OHV recreation and related conservation needs.

ODAA continues to urge APCD, State Parks, OHV Commission, and Coastal Commission to review the mistakes (e.g. construction of man-made foredune structures and ill-advised vegetation projects) made at the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area by government agencies and other stakeholders in a misguided effort to “help” the dunes.
Today, OHV, conservation groups, and agencies are working together to manage the Oregon Dunes for future generations. Part of that new effort is to restore (e.g. remove) man-made foredune structures and invasive vegetation.
ODAA believes that collaboration not closure is the best model to follow for future OHV and other outdoor recreation activities at Oceano Dunes SVRA.
ODAA thanks you in advance for reviewing this video and for your ongoing support of managed high quality OHV recreation and camping opportunities at Oceano Dunes SVRA.
