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. Criteria for determining permit issuance include: (1) Size of group, (2) number of permits per month, (3) purpose of event (does it benefit the overall community in some way). Additional criteria may be developed as an adaptive management measure; Vegetative gathering for personal use will be allowed from May to November along designated trails. 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. Overnight camping will not be allowed except by permit. Employees, agents and permitees of the BLM may be exempt from these restrictions for administrative and emergency purposes only. Penalties include a fine not to exceed $1,000 and/or imprisonment not to exceed 12 months. These restrictions are necessary to (1) Protect aquatic and terrestrial species from the effects of unregulated impacts, (2) ensure public safety, (3) reduce the potential for wildfires in this wildland urban interface, and (4) minimize inadvertent trespass onto adjoining private property. They will remain in effect until a formal planning process, with full public participation, is completed.
