Del Albright

Del has shared 35 years of wisdom, experience in leadership, and supervision to help keep public lands open to the public.  He has spent time working on trails, attending meetings, writing letters, joining and starting organizations, and meeting with elected officials to effectively save access to public lands.

While he is known for doing all of these things, in addition to being a Life Member of the California 4Wheel Drive Association, his most significant contribution to off-road motorsports sets him apart from others in land-use: educating and mentoring the OHV community.   His extensive background in leadership, supervision, and management has allowed him to mentor many other land-use advocates through his volunteer and leadership training courses and books, as well as his Volunteer Leader and Land Stewardship (VLLS) workshops.  Del has also guided smaller groups, such as 4×4 clubs, as well as  “Friends of” organizations that have modeled themselves after the Friends of the Rubicon, which Del was a principal founder of many years ago.
