Yamaha’s Outdoor Access Initiative distributed $145,175 in the second quarter of 2022 to groups and initiatives aimed at expanding and protecting access to outdoor recreation. According to Yamaha, the money doled out in Q2 went to initiatives to develop a database of public land trades to help the public advocate to maintain access, a program to teach land managers about sustainable trail building, trail rebuilding and rehabilitation with a focus on protecting sensitive environments, and a program to introduce kindergarteners to biking.

To achieve those ends, the money went to six applicants around the country. They were: Colorado Wild Public Lands of Basalt, Colorado; Indian Creek Valley ATV Club of Indian Head, Pennsylvania; Limestone Trail Hawks of Aroostook County, Maine; the National Off Highway Vehicle Conservation Council; All Kids Bike; and the Nature Conservancy Tennessee Chapter.

Applications for the OAI’s third-quarter round of funding close September 30. Since its inception in 2014, the OAI has donated more than $5 million to projects and programs around the country.
