The Boise ATV Trail Riders Club (BATRC), along with the local members of the Idaho State ATV Association (ISATVA), work with several Federal and State Agencies in developing trail systems and assist in maintaining some of the existing ones, such as trimming brush and fallen trees out of the trail, building bridges, and cleaning up trash.  We also work with several state counties on projects such as fixing cattle guards, planting road  signs, etc.

 Education Campaign

The Idaho Department of Parks & Recreation, Idaho Department of Fish & Game, Idaho Department of Lands, U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management sponsor an ongoing education campaign to help inform OHV  (Off-Highway Vehicles) users about the rules of conduct for off-highway vehicles such as all-terrain vehicles (ATV), motorcycles, utility terrain vehicles (UTVs) and four-wheeled drive vehicles (jeeps, pickups, etc.) on public lands.  Their campaign message focuses on themes such as “Stay on Trails and “Use your Power Responsibly.”  Our BATR Club also promotes staying on trails and being a responsible user.  Click on the Idaho OHV Public Education Campaign website.  See State & Federal Organizations links located at bottom of this page.

 Living and Playing in the Same Area

Some photos of various wildlife and animals that have not been affected by ATV users. These photos were taken by several different BATR members throughout the years.  These demonstrate that we can live and play in the same area together!  All our local ISATVA club(s) “Work together to keep the roads and trails open for all.”
