Not sure how many of y’all are dune riders, but we came across a news story that we thought was pretty cool, especially for those who enjoy tearing up sand instead of mud.

Apparently, Polaris is working with the American Sand Association (aSa) and a bunch of volutneers to help reopen 40,000 acres of currently closed dunes for recreation in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area. But, they need your help.

On May 2 and 3rd, there’ll be a volunteer registration to work on this project and if you have a side by side and you’re willing to help, they sure would appreciate it. Here are the details:
May 2 – Volunteer registration from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
May 3 – 5:30 a.m. briefing, volunteer registration

Due to the excessive heat during this time, we expect to be finished by 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be provided afterwards.
