The Arizona OHV Ambassador program is a volunteer program that provides a means for private citizens to work with a variety of federal, state, and local land managers and public safety officials in Arizona to promote responsible off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation on public, state, and private lands. Volunteers contribute their time, experience, and local knowledge of OHV areas in Arizona by monitoring public lands in groups of two or more on motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), utility vehicles (UTVs), or 4×4 vehicles.
Through these monitoring efforts volunteers provide a positive image of their recreation activity, identify and record road, trail, and other resource issues, report misuse of lands, and participate in special projects to enhance OHV areas in Arizona. OHV Ambassadors receive extensive training from professional training representatives and serve as a point of contact for other OHV users to obtain helpful and informative information about the trails they ride.
Anyone who has off-highway vehicle experience and is able to provide their own off-highway vehicle which is licensed/street legal can volunteer as an OHV Ambassador, provided they are willing to abide by the OHV Ambassador Code of Conduct. Ambassador must wear full-face helmets unless in a full-size vehicle and are not allowed to carry guns while on duty. OHV Ambassador volunteers will be recruited and selected without regard to race, creed, religion, age, sex, color, national origin or disability.
