SFWDA joins a Cooperative Grant to provide Smart Maps for all within the Uwharrie National Forest

Uwharrie Co-Op Grant Info Package

Uwharrie Co-Op Grant Info Package

 We are very proud to announce an exciting new Educational Grant project to map the Uwharrie National Forest!

 Made possible together with a dynamic team of both sponsors, and volunteers. The team at CartoTracks will not only be mapping the OHV trails, but also the hiking, mountain bike, horse, and kayak trails. Our hope is that this project will bring trail conservation further into the spotlight, potentially saving the lands we all hold so dearly — at Uwharrie National Forest. 

An educational project has been started to turn the Uwharrie National Forest Trail System (UNFTS) into an Interpretative Trail System (ITS), where important key areas along the trails are identified by local experts and then identified with signage along the trail and highlighted on an Interactive Map Application (IMA). This will be the first of its kind in the nation.  



The UNF Interpretative Trail System project is being sponsored by organizations like Tread Lightly!, 4 Wheel Parts, Carolina Trail Blazers, Carolina Jeep Beach Go Topless Day and the National Forest Service. To date each sponsor has donated in their own way to creating the Interpretative Trails in the Uwharrie National Forest.

This project showcases how the OHV community contributes positively.  By supporting the mapping portion of this project, the OHV community illustrates to the overall outdoor recreation community and the National Forest Service that we are dedicated to promoting responsible use of the trail system by all. 


I am really glad to see SFWDA and Carolina Beach Jeep Go Topless Day step up and illustrate to all those that like to recreate in the great outdoors that we are committed to helping provide tools that will help everyone.

While doing the research to determine the value of this Uwharrie National Forest Trail System mapping project, feedback from OHV enthusiasts, hikers, bikers and equestrians indicated a GPS enabled map that requires no cellular network connectivity will help them stay on the designated trails as they trek through the forest.

$30,000 Contribution to ORBA from 4 Wheel Parts Round Up Campaign

 
 Compton, California (June 14, 2017) – 4 Wheel Parts, the global leader in off-road performance product sales and installation, presented a check in the amount of $30,872 to the Off-Road Business Association (ORBA) as part of its “Round Up” charitable fundraising initiative. The “Round Up” initiative served to raise funds to support the foundation’s goals of promoting, preserving and expanding meaningful off-road recreation on public and private land. Led by 4 Wheel Parts Regional Manager, Jeremy Komorn, the full roster of 80 stores across North America supported the successful campaign by providing customers the option of rounding up to the next dollar at checkout with the proceeds to be directly contributed to ORBA.  
 
The Off Road Business Association is an International Trade Association, comprised of member businesses ranging from large, international corporations to rural family run businesses. ORBA provides leadership and advocacy for the preservation of motorized access and the future of off-highway vehicles.  “With their dedication to ensuring that the off-road industry maintains a voice at the local, state and federal level, ORBA is performing crucial work as they continue protecting people’s opportunities to enjoy recreational off-roading,” said 4 Wheel Parts President and CEO, Greg Adler. “Off-road activities are important to our customers and we are grateful to them that they have shared in our objective of supporting this cause that is so important to us all.”    
 
All monies collected were directed to the nonprofit trade organization to further their objectives. The presentation was made this past Friday at the Light Truck Accessory Alliance (LTAA) meeting and luncheon held at the Ontario Convention Center by LTAA Chair, Kathryn Reinhardt and 4 Wheel Parts executives, Brent Goegebuer and Sam Cervantes.  
 
“For nearly two decades 4 Wheel Parts and its subsidiary companies have been passionate supporters of ORBA,” said ORBA President and CEO, Fred Wiley. “Several years ago, Greg Adler stepped up and became an ORBA board member and shortly after that, he was elected chairman. In addition to his active participation in our endeavors, this contribution is an example of how Greg and 4 Wheel Parts’ passion for the off road world furthers our collective efforts to preserve accessibility to the public private lands we offroaders enjoy.”
