Back in 2007, Kawasaki first became aware of the need for on-site transportation for the BLM Camp Host at Buttercup. Discussions with the American Desert Foundation and BLM Imperial Sand Dunes Manager Neil Hamada determined that a side by side vehicle such as a Kawasaki Teryx would accommodate the needs of the Camp Host.
Hamada indicated that the availability of the Teryx will allow BLM to utilize our camp host to patrol the area, make positive visitor contacts, pick up trash, and provide assistance when needed. It will also free up a BLM pick up truck for EMT use to provide medical services in the dunes.
Through the continued efforts of Kawasaki, a brand new Teryx will be available to the BLM on a loan basis. Kawasaki will formally present the Teryx to the ADF who will then loan it to the BLM at the 2009 Dune Tour Spooktacular www.thedunetour.com on October 31, 2009.
The American Desert Foundation is a non-profit corporation, established and organized under Section 501c(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code, which, is dedicated to improving scientific understanding of the ecosystems and human uses that define the desert regions of the United States.
