The ATBE 4WD Association for recreation & Expedition (AWARE 4WD) (Society) are working towards being a Provincial umbrella organization comprised of 4×4 clubs and individual members. Our mandate is to represent the interests of the 4×4 enthusiasts & community to ensure the long-term sustainability of 4 wheel drive recreation. We work to achieve this through user education, advocacy work and cooperative trail management and maintenance programs.
What we do for you…
Tirelessly working to protect your right to access Crown Lands under the Free Use policy of the Public Lands Act and maintain the inventory of the 4×4/multi-use trails.
Achieved through direct representation to the BC Government.
Trail Management and Maintenance Programs:
An increasingly important area of activity for us is in the area of trail maintenance and user management.
Promote Safe and Responsible 4WD:
Promote 4×4 recreation as a safe and rewarding recreational experience for everyone (Families, youth, people with accessibility challenges etc.)
Environmental concerns are very important. Members are regularly reminded of their need to consider trail conditions and driving practices to minimize their impact on the environment.
How We Operate…
AWARE is driven solely by volunteers. The board of directors, executive team and contributing membership volunteer thousands of hours a year to ensure our recreational sport of 4WD has a bright future.
Let’s make a difference together. Join the AWAR and progress the sport we all passionately enjoy.
