IT’s THAT TIME OF YEAR WHEN WE REACH OUT TO ALL TRAIL BLAZERS TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP WITH THE IDAHO PATHFINDERS ASSOCIATION.
YOUR SUPPORT MEANS:
Representing a strong voice for citizens, residents and visitors to the Nezperce Clearwater National Forest to enjoy the bounties of our public lands.
Also, in lieu of issues that ALWAYS seem to be brewing in the background with no end: like Western Pacific Timber who is STILL to this day (2019) lobbying the State of Idaho to devise strategies that will work, for a land exchange of their barren high mountain Lochsa property. They have NOT stopped trying to manipulate a deal to gain our BEAUTIFULLY TIMBERED LAND AND MOUNTAIN OASIS in exchange for a Moonscape and rock with no trees and far from having any multi-use value. The Forest Service does want the Lochsa Land for the Watershed that sits atop that mountain. But the people had already spoken. Remember the meeting at the GEMS Gym when Senator Risch setup the hearing?
Bottom line is: The more members we have, the STRONGER our cumulative VOICE of the PEOPLE who want to protect our rights to explore, discover, relax and have fun in a multi-use environment, while enjoying the mountain air and fresh pine scents, clearing our minds of the work week or other concerns, and getting outdoors to ride the trails,pick berries in the summer, gather firewood, and even snowmobiling in the winter. All of our local clubs the Snowmobiler Club, Idaho Pathfinders, Backcountry Horsemen, Grangeville Rescue and more, work hard every year to clear trails of big rocks, debris, fallen trees, shrubbery and to work in concert with the Forest Service to keep our trails clear. It doesn’t happen without the elbow grease of groups of volunteers, be it members of IPA or other clubs.
Please talk to your friends and family and let them know why a membership in the Idaho Pathfinders Association goes further than riding trails with other members. If you value riding the trails in the Nezperce Clearwater National Forest, your membership shows a body of people who care about keeping trails open for our recreational enjoyment and underlines the importance of showing how many people are willing to protect and keep trails open.
IPA’s primary message is “working for the public to keep trails open”.
Its just $20 for a single person and $25 for a family.
