mud bogging

The freedom of mud bogging is to become a pastime of the past.

The Province of B.C. has taken a firm stand on mud bogging, which is an activity where people drive around on Crown land in an off-road utility vehicle.

This once recreational pastime, is now considered a crime in B.C. and those who are caught breaking the law can face penalties, including a $575 fine, a vehicle tow or impoundment, expenses related to habitat restoration or even jail time.

The Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations says mud bogging disrupts the ecological foundations of B.C.’s natural areas and, in sensitive sites, the damage can be catastrophic.

Minister Steve Thomson says “everyone is encouraged to enjoy public forests and range lands but to stay safe a tread lightly. Most people who use Crown land act responsibly, but the damage caused by mud bogging is not only ugly, it has negative effects on previous fish and wildlife habitat.”

The public is encouraged to report suspicious activities and environmental damage to the province’s toll-free, 24-hour phone line. The phone number is 1-877-952-7277.
