27 Sep Quadratec 50 for 50 Impact Report: Holly Oaks ORV Park Cleanup
Project: Holly Oaks ORV Park Cleanup
Location: Holly, MI
Description: This project was funded by the Quadratec 50 for 50 Initiative. Together with Tread Lightly!, Quadratec will fund a project in each state over 24 months to help improve or enhance public lands and off-road recreation areas.
On September 15, 2022, to kick off the 2022 edition of Detroit 4Fest, Quadratec, Tread Lightly! and Jeep Team Members, along with volunteers from several states, worked to cleanup the Holly Oaks ORV Park in Holly, Michigan. The 25 volunteers removed 4,000 pounds of trash, including 48 discarded tires. This project helped to improve the 205 acre ORV park.
Holly Oaks ORV Park is operated by Oakland County Parks in Southeast Michigan in cooperation with the Michigan DNR. The park is maintained through park entry fees, so the support from the 50 for 50 program goes a long way to help improve this area. Parks like Holly Oaks are an important part of the off-road lifestyle as you head eastward in the United States due to the limited amount of trail opportunities as compared to the West.
This was the sixth project of fifty as part of Quadratec and Tread Lightly!’s 50 for 50 initiative. Over the next 2 years, the partners will fund and a project in each of the 50 states that improves public lands or off-road trail access.
