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'', 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. 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.

Preparation for Sale
Document Number: 05-22779
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-11-17
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Land Management Bureau
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to amend its regulations on preparation for timber sales to allow third party scaling on density management sales with an upper limit on the quadratic mean diameter at breast height (DBH) of the trees to be harvested of 20 inches. Third party scaling would be limited to the situations described in the amended provision, that is, if a timber disaster has occurred and a critical resource loss is imminent, and tree cruising and BLM scaling are inadequate to permit orderly disposal of the damaged timber, or if BLM is carrying out density management timber sales subject to the size limits stated above. Thus, third party scaling would generally not be used for sales of higher-value and/or larger diameter timber. BLM is amending the regulations in order to improve the efficiency of density management timber sales where the timber to be harvested may be designated by prescription (a written prescription included in the timber sale contract). The regulations will no longer require that BLM perform all scaling except in the event that a timber disaster is threatening imminent critical resource loss, and scaling by BLM would be inadequate to permit orderly disposal of the damaged timber. In the case of density management timber sales when the quadratic mean DBH of trees to be cut and removed is equal to or less than 20 inches, the regulations will only allow third party scaling by scalers or scaling bureaus under contract to BLM.
