SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Arcata Field Office will establish temporary restrictions pursuant to the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 43, Subpart 8364.1 to effectively implement interim management guidelines for certain BLM-administered public lands hereafter referred to as ‘‘Ma-le’l Dunes’’, VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:11 Dec 01, 2005 Jkt 205001 located in Township 6 North, Range 1 West, portions of Sections 26, 27, 34, and 35, Humboldt County, California. Ma-le’l Dunes consists of approximately 150 acres and is located along the coastline nearly two miles west of Arcata, CA. These restrictions are needed on a temporary basis until a Resource Management Plan (RMP) Amendment, beginning in 2008, is completed for the area. The area is now open to dispersed recreation uses with an emphasis placed on accommodating pedestrian and equestrian access to the coastline. The temporary restrictions are as follows: The parking/picnic area will be closed to vehicles from one hour after sunset to sunrise; Equestrian use will be allowed on designated trails and the waveslope; Pedestrian use will be allowed on designated trails, open sandy areas, and the waveslope; Dogs must be leashed in the developed recreation site (parking/ picnic area); otherwise dogs will be allowed off-leash consistent with the Humboldt County ordinance; Group camping will be allowed on a case by case basis under Special Recreation Permit guidelines.

Off-trail gathering will require a permit during this same time period; Fires will be allowed in designated sites (fire rings) only; The area will be open to day use, from sunrise to one hour after sunset.

They will remain in effect until a formal planning process, with full public participation, is completed.
