Volunteer With Utah 4 Wheel Drive Association

U4WDA is a 100% all-volunteer organization. We count on involved members and 4x4 users to complete our mission to protect 4x4 access on public lands and educate 4x4 users in Utah.

U4WDA Volunteers Repairing Fence

Being a volunteer with U4WDA is easy! All it takes is commitment and a desire to help the 4x4 community. Whether you have a few hours per week or a few hours per month, we need all the help we can get.

U4WDA is always in need of volunteers to work at service projects, serve on the Board of Directors, and assist with activities.

Review the list of current volunteer needs below, and contact us if you think you can help out.


Upcoming Service Projects

U4WDA 2011 National Public Lands Day - Saturday September 24, 2011

Join the U4WDA in the nations largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands across America. Each year, with the help of over 400 volunteers, U4WDA member clubs organized projects across the state of Utah that repaired trails, cleaned up camsites, built and repaired fences, removed trash and held information workshops.

This year, U4WDA invites you to join us for our Nations 2011 National Public Lands Day service projects across the state of Utah.- More information about NPLD coming soon


President's Projects

The "President's Projects" are long or short term projects initiated by the association President to benefit U4WDA's mission and goals. While some have claimed these projects to be "busy work" there is no such thing in an all-volunteer organization. Each one of these projects is intended to assist with a specific aspect of our long term strategy for protecting and promoting responsible motorized access on public lands.


GIS and Digital Mapping

U4WDA has a need to be able to accurately document OHV routes, and produce detailed digital (and printable) maps with the data. We need someone with computer and GPS skills or interest who can assemble the necessary equipment, software, and training for U4WDA to be able to provide this type of data to land managers and users.

Contact us for more information.


Local, State, Federal, and Business Grants

U4WDA qualifies for many types of grants available through various local, state, federal, and business entities. These badly needed funds could be used to support legal action, provide badly needed resources for land managers, and grow U4WDA as an Association. We need someone to do a little digging, and follow the leads we've already established to determine what type of grants are available.

Contact us for more information.


U4WDA Member Club Grants

U4WDA has a desire to make micro-grants available to member clubs working on public land projects in their area. These grants would be in the $100-$250 range depending on need and value to the 4x4 community. The Board of Directors has approved the concept, and all we need now is the framework for applying for and awarding these grants. Other programs in place with BRC and UFWDA could be emulated to determine the parameters for this grant program.

Contact us for more information.
