RTRA Awarded Two Sustainable Recreation Grants

06-Aug-2010

The Minister for Environment and Youth, Donna Farragher MLC today presented the RTRA with a cheque for just under $60,000.

The funding, part of the State Government's Environmental Community Grant, is for two significant projects - a Minimal Impact Riding Program and a Pilot Trail Bike Trail to be developed near Perth.

These two projects will support the RTRA's objective of safeguarding the future of recreational trail bike riding in Western Australia.

The Pilot Trail Project's objective is to develop a dedicated trail for trail bikes that establishes and tests a methodology for planning, design, engineering, rehabilitation, construction, signage, monitoring, maintenance and evaluation of a sustainable trail bike trail.  This information will then be used as a model for future trail assessment and development.

The Minimal Impact Riding Program will alert and educate riders to the impact of their riding and how they can adopt behaviours to minimise that impact. The objective is to reduce the impacts of trail bike riding on the environment, thereby assisting with the sustainability of trail bike riding as a recreational activity.

The Environmental Community Grants are a competitive process and this is the first time that trail bike riding has received funding of this type.  It is firm evidence of the progress that the RTRA is making in raising the profile of recreational trail bike riding and our pro-active approach.
