SFWDA supports and facilitates projects throughout the year at the club, state and regional levels. Consistent with our stated mission the purpose is to respect and protect our valuable natural resources and promote responsible land usage in both the public and private sectors. SFWDA works in close cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), state agencies in various regions and also private land owners. The SFWDA member clubs and individual members contribute thousands of man-hours each year on projects. Our member clubs work on projects at Uwharrie National Forest (NC), Beasley Knob (GA), Sandlick (KY) and many other locations throughout the southeastern United States. Each of these projects encompass working with land use agencies, local government agencies and land owners to facilitate responsible land usage and OHV trail conservation.
The promotion of safe, friendly 4 wheel drive recreation among people who share the common interest of family oriented fun is of prime importance to the SFWDA. Four wheeling is a sport that is enjoyed by people of all ages and walks of life. SFWDA welcomes all enthusiasts regardless of age, sex, race or level of expertise. We help to organize and promote a variety of off road events all over the southeast United States where we unite to socialize, communicate, and appreciate the outdoors with our four wheel drive vehicles.

SFWDA has joined forces with this emerging new Association who appears to have a clear understanding of the many challenges faced by OHV enthusiasts. They have outlined a strategy to become more politically relevant and more effective and actually try winning land use battles.
