Recent efforts to support and improve motorized recreation infrastructure and protect surrounding resources are documented here.  Future project highlights will be added as information becomes available.

Red Rock OHV Conservation Crew (RROCC) was established with support from the Chamber of Commerce.  RROCC is a coalition of private OHV/ATV businesses and Jeep rental and guided tour companies from Cottonwood, Sedona, and Flagstaff, along with TreadLightly!, a national nonprofit dedicated to ethical and responsible motorized recreation. The Sedona Chamber convened this group and continues to work with them in partnership with the US Forest Service – Coconino National Forest Red Rock Ranger District, AZ State Parks, AZ Fish & Game, Yavapai County Sheriffs Office and the City of Sedona Police and staff.
