DNR’s 2012 Volunteer Hero honored by American Motorcycle Association

Bob Langley Volunteer Hero
Bob Langley has spent thousands of hours volunteering his time working on DNR trails.

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) honored Bob Langley last year as one of our 2012 Volunteer Heros for his outstanding contribution to DNR. Now Bob has received a second award for his volunteer efforts on DNR-managed land:

The 2013 American Motorcycle Association (AMA) Outstanding Off-Road Rider Award highlights the achievements of an individual who has contributed to the promotion of the motorcycling lifestyle and the protection of off-highway motorcycling.

For 2013, Washington state’s Langley was acknowledged for his tireless work — 800-1000 hours per year –maintaining riding trails in off-road-vehicle areas throughout his home state. The Boeing Company retiree was hailed by the state’s Department of Natural Resources as one of its top volunteers statewide in 2012.

“I am grateful to the AMA for this award,” said Langley. “Giving back to the sport that I love is why I do what I do. Off-road riding is in my blood and volunteering on our trails is one way to make sure that these trails will be around for future generations to enjoy.”

In 2012 alone, Langley logged over 600 hours volunteering at Walker Valley State Forest and over 100 hours at Capital State Forest. Bob’s leadership, humor, concern for the environment, and amazing attitude inspire children and adults alike.

Thanks for all the awesome volunteering Bob! You inspire us all!
