Vancouver, Washington – 9/14/2015 – Jones Creek Trail Riders Association (JCTRA) is pleased to announce it has received a Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative GRANT of $6000 for equipment rentals to support monthly OHV trail maintenance activities over the next year. The GRANT was awarded as part of Yamaha’s Outdoor Access Initiative promoting safe, responsible riding and open, sustainable riding areas.

The grant will be used to provide excavator and skid steer rentals to support volunteers during JCTRA's monthly OHV trail maintenance efforts on the Jones Creek OHV trail system.

JCTRA President Mike Ames stated that “JCTRA is grateful to have received this much needed grant from Yamaha. The grant will greatly increase the amount of work our small volunteer labor force is capable of undertaking.”

The Jones Creek Trail Riders Association holds monthly work parties in cooperation with the Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR), land manager of the Jones Creek OHV area located just East of Vancouver, Washington. JCTRA work parties are open to the public and the club encourages interested persons to attend the work parties which help maintain and improve this wonderful public resource. JCTRA uses rented excavators and other equipment to re-contour the trail surface and create various features to aid in the control of water run-off in addition to providing trail riders with a safe and enjoyable OHV trail riding opportunity.
