SPEAR starts Legal Action fund
Try as we might, our successes in keeping our public lands PUBLIC have been few. We find that peaceful protests, meetings, rallies, and just logic/reasoning are not working very well. We want everything we do to always be LEGAL. Therefore we are beginning a new approach using the legal system. We have started a Legal Action Fund which will be yet another tool available to us. You can help keep this tool sharp & effective!! Your contributions will help us preserve our heritage and way of life for our posterity. Click here to contribute.

Grant from Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA
SPEAR recently received a very much appreciated grant in the amount of $5,800
from Yamaha. The GRANT program (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our
Nation's Trails) is part of Yamaha's OHV Access Initiative which promotes safe,
responsible riding and sustainable, open riding areas. We are using the
GRANT proceeds to purchase an ATV trailer, an impact hammer and trail signing
materials. For pictures and more information, please
