Projects are executed throughout the entire year at club and state levels. The purpose is to respect and protect our valuable resources. This is accomplished in part by a close cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). The SFWDA and the associated clubs contribute thousands of man-hours each year on projects with the USFS through the Challenge Cost Share program. Through the Adopt-A-Trail program, clubs adopt one or more trails and help the Forest Service with maintenance throughout the year. Each of these projects encompass working with land use agencies regarding conservation in our states and helping in identifying unsafe roads which should be closed as well as informing those organizations of which roads we would like to remain open

A strong emphasis of SFWDA is on education to all Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts to help ensure safe and courteous driving and proper vehicle use off-highway. The SFWDA, under the auspices of the United Four Wheel Drive Association (UFWDA), has a 4wd Awareness program which is held on a regular basis for novice drivers. The 4wd Awareness Program educates the 4x4 owner about general off-highway techniques and courtesies related to OHV usage and more specific education related to driving skills, elementary vehicle mechanics, recovery techniques and recommended equipment to carry on the trail. Our emphasis on education not only encompasses 4wd safety, but also emphasizes environmental concerns and the “Tread Lightly” philosophy. In addition, members of the SFWDA are sensitized to today’s need for environmental awareness and we try to pass that knowledge on to others in our sport.
