BLM - Arcata Field Office
G10-01-02-G01: I want to express my support for the Ground Operations application submitted by the BLM Arcata Field Office. The Samoa Dunes Recreation Area is an important recreation area for approx. 28,500 OHV Enthusiasts every year. Maintenance and management of OHV areas are critical to keeping areas open to OHV recreation, and having spoken with the Bruce, and hearing his dedication to the Samoa Dunes, I know that his actions will match his words in use of the grant funds.
It is a pleasure to recommend funding of this grant.
G10-01-02-L01:The other important aspect to keeping areas open to OHV recreation is appropriate law enforcement. Those of us in the OHV community do not support illegal or inappropriate behavior in OHV riding areas, and I am happy to support this grant request. Law Enforcement personnel work closely with volunteers and the local sheriff's department to enforce regulations, and this partnership is a good example to law enforcement throughout the state.
