Teaching Children to Recreate Responsibly.

Safety First.

Funding for the CRA?

Off-highway vehicles are not only fun, but a useful tool for many types of field work.  Learning how to operate these machines in a safe & responsible manner is a must!  The California Recreation Alliance provides FREE safety training courses for children.  Students learn the importance of always using safety equipment, how to ride safely and how to be good environmental stewards.  Check out upcoming events to see when our next classes are.     


One of the most common questions the California Recreation Alliance is asked is "How do you pay for all of this?"  We currently receive the majority of our funding through grants; the Department of Parks and Recreation Off-Highway Vehicle Program grant program funds much of our work.  This money comes from green and red stickers, which are the registration required for off-highway vehicles to be operated on public lands.  This money allows us to provide programs for the youth of our area.  

Just one of our many classes!
