Humboldt Redwood Company (HRC) fully supports the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office application for an OHV Grant. The Humboldt County Sheriff's Department and personnel have had an excellent and long-standing relationship with the local Timber Companies and our local communities. The Humboldt County Sheriff's Department has provided law enforcement, public safety and search and rescue services to the benefit of Company lands, employees and our neighbors. Humboldt County is an isolated area with a dispersed population covering a large area of wild and rugged terrain. This requires a law enforcement group capable of covering a lot ground and the use of OHVs to protect people and resources at risk. HRC has a Habitat Conservation Plan with the goal of protecting sensitive, threatened and endangered species. It also requires reduced impacts to our roads and prevention of sediment production to the benefit of wildlife and aquatic species. Off road vehicles are part and parcel to reduced impacts. HRC lands contain riparian habitat utilized by the Snowy Plover along the lower Van Duzen River and Eel River. The Humboldt County Sheriff's Department helps advise the citizenry of environmental, property, and safety risks and helps prevent adverse impacts to people, property, species and natural resources due to their activities. The Humboldt County Sheriff's Department assists us in patrolling our property along the community/forestland interface and detecting and removing the illegal drug operations that encroach onto our lands. They also assist in search and rescue operations when loggers are injured or citizens become lost on our land. HRC very much supports the Humboldt County Sheriff's Department and their pursuit of a grant to better assist them in doing the good job they have done and will do in the future to protect our natural resources, people, and communities.
