A little background on why we track volunteer hours.
The State organization—Backcountry Horsemen of California
(BCHC)—requires that our unit submit our volunteer hours each year, which are then combined with all the other units in California to create a grand total of volunteer work performed on public lands by BCHC. These hours translate into a very large dollar value
and give the State and National Backcountry Horsemen organizations the clout
they need to negotiate with the various federal, state, and local agencies to establish and maintain access
of horses, mules, and their owners (us!) to our public lands
